    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Snapshots, 1955. Eight total, all original prints with a glossy finish, three different sizes (two being trimmed from their original size), all depicting the star wearing a white cocktail dress and white fur as she and her date, Joe DiMaggio, attend the June 1, 1955 premiere of "The Seven Year Itch" (which was also MM's 29th birthday); most images are out of focus but still of interest as this is a now-historic event in film history; from the personal collection of James Collins, one of the 'Monroe Six' -- the group of young kids who followed Marilyn around NYC so often that the star ended up knowing them all by name and allowing them special access to her (like letting them take countless pictures and giving them numerous autographs). (Please note there is black paper remnants on the back from when they were in a scrapbook and the largest one has a 1" tear on the center right side.)
    6 1/2" x 5"; 3 1/2" x 5"; 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
