A Marilyn Monroe likely never-before-seen black and white snapshot, 1952
Taken while MM was filming "Niagara," this vintage print with a glossy finish shows her standing outside with the Falls in the background, just out of range. Many other similar photographs were taken of her on this day (as evidenced by the outfit), but this particular one appears to have been shot by an amateur as her hair is blowing in the wind and her stance is somewhat stiff (which could also be due to her wearing strappy high heels on a rugged terrain). (Please note there are some surface creases and slight staining on the verso, but the overall image is not affected.)
