    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Black and White Contact Sheet Photographs, 1950s. Fourteen total, all original prints with a glossy finish, cut into strips showing two or three images each, all depict the then-starlet wearing a fitted black turtleneck with white shorts as she poses on a chaise lounge chair next to a swimming pool, one image shows MM with a man and two images show a different man posing alone by the same pool, red grease pencil checks appear on three, regular pencil cross-outs appear on three as well. (Please note there is minor paper loss and slight creasing on a few and there is a one-hole punch mark on one, but the images of MM are not affected.)
    Each Strip: 8" x 2 1/2"; Each Individual Image: 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

    These photographs of Monroe were taken on October 10, 1950 by Bob Beerman, a staff photographer at 'Modern Screen' magazine. A few of the images did appear in a 1951 issue of that magazine, though most did not. These strips were the actual 'working' contact sheets used by the photographer (and possibly MM herself) as evidenced by the penciled cross-outs on them.
