    Default OOPS! Man claims to have rare Marilyn Monroe photo: Madonna instead

    Vegas Man Confuses Monroe and Madonna

    Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, play a scene in "The Misfits" in this undate...

    LAS VEGAS — Imitation can be the sincerest form of confusion.

    So learned a Las Vegas man who alerted the media this week that he thought he had his hands on a rare photo of Marilyn Monroe posing nude as a hitchhiker. What he had was a famous photo of Madonna.

    The image of the Material Girl, who often cast herself as a sort of latter-day Monroe, appeared in "Sex," her 1992 book of risque photography. In it, she posed in heels and handbag, with a cigarette in her mouth.

    Lawrence Nicastro, 73, said he found the grainy, poster-size photo last year while going through storage items at his home in Las Vegas. He believed it had been left by a customer at his service station in the Bronx in 1962.

    Nicastro and his wife, Phyllis, said they had spent about four months researching the origin of the photograph and called in Chris Harris, a publicist and Monroe expert, for help authenticating it.
    Harris said it was a dead ringer for Monroe and scheduled a Wednesday news conference to unveil the image to reporters.

    The two men gave The Associated Press a sneak peak Tuesday.
    "You're right; it's Madonna," Harris said after being told of the mix-up. Harris said he believed someone had slipped the poster into Nicastro's storage as a prank.
    "If there ever was an embarrassing moment," he said, adding that he planned to go ahead with the news conference to "face the music."

    There is one person, he noted, who should feel good about the mistaken identity.
    "Who wins here? Madonna, of course," Harris said. "She really looks like Marilyn Monroe."

    HUH?? They must have been paid by Madonna to say this, because she is NOT a dead ringer for Marilyn!

    Well how embarrassing. He was 73, so I'd give him a pass. But that so-called MM "expert" needs to be severely beaten.

    ^^^ Exactly, How can this guy be an expert on Monroe and not see the massive difference in the picture? She looks nothing like Monroe and if that didn't tip you off. The fact that the cars in the picture are not from the 1960s should have brought up a red flag.

    How could anybody who's ever seen Marilyn think that photo is of her.

    Those early 1990s model cars are a bit of a clue too........ God, Madge had a rocking body back then, eh?
