Happy Birthday to Marilyn Monroe: A Photographic Tribute

Marilyn Monroe died in August of 1962.  If she had lived on, she would be 91.  I can’t even form a picture in my mind of Marilyn Monroe being 51, let alone 91.  She did not have a huge body of work, but in every film in which she appeared, she lit up the screen.  You couldn’t take your eyes off of her.

If you’re a film collector as I am, you should have most of these films in your library.  All these screenshots were taken from my Blu-ray and DVD’s.  It’s hard to share just one screenshot from each film when there is literally thousands to choose from, but I did my best.

Marilyn will never age.  Not in my mind.  There isn’t a single one of these films that I haven’t viewed multiple times.  On June 11th and 14th, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies will bring Marilyn back to the big screen with a special showing of Some Like It Hot with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see Marilyn on the big screen. 

So Happy Birthday to the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe.
