Marilyn Misfit.

 

Most of us know Marilyn Monroe as the sexy blonde bombshell that all other sexy blonde bombshells who’ve followed look to emulate.

Personally, I prefer the other, oft-unseen side of Monroe; the one who appreciates literature, who yearned to be a serious actress. The one who, to borrow a line from Elton John, was innocently “found… in the nude”.

Here are some rare pictures of the star on the set of her last completed film, The Misfits, taken by Eve Arnold, who says, “Marilyn was very important in my career. I think I was helpful in hers too.”
