    Default Possibly rare photos of Marilyn Monroe up for auction

    There is a huge auction of Marilyn Monroe's personal items (here: Entertainment Memorabilia : Hollywood Memorabilia : Beatles & Rock Memorabilia : Julien's Auctions) and I checked out the auction booklet and took some screenshots of some of the photos. Some of the photos have a black bar on them because the file wouldn't stop loading- sorry about that. Most of the dates should be right- i went off what the booklet said. Anyway, enjoy!

    There's a bunch of photos so I'll probably upload them in batches so check for updates.

    1945:



    1949 and her early years:






    1954:



    1956:



    1957:
    promo still from The Prince and the Showgirl:


    I thought one of her costumes from the movie was beautiful- also here are some magazine covers:


    1958:





    1961 with Clark Gable:

    Thanks so much for these, Cali. I'm reading a book about Marilyn at the moment: 'Blonde' by Joyce Carol Oates. It's kind of heartbreaking seeing these photos.

    I though it would be impossible to take a bad picture of Marilyn, but the dumb photographer here managed to do it!
    She looks short and unproportioned.

    Gorgeous pics, thank you. I think the first one under 1954 is from the 1960's.

    That one is her last photoshoot for Life magazine in 1962, they auctioned the chair and it still had a puncture hole from her stiletto.
