    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Likely Never-Before-Seen Black and White Photographs from Korea, 1954. Twenty total, all original prints with a glossy finish, all shot by one of the official Army photographers who had close access to the star; including: three that show MM wearing pants, a bomber jacket, and combat boots; seven that show MM in a black turtleneck, pants, and combat boots surrounded by others in the mess hall; three that show MM in a houndstooth-like print dress; six that show MM on stage wearing a sequined dress with spaghetti straps as she sings for the soldiers; and one that shows the outdoor stage and the audience before MM appears (so MM is not in this shot); though these images are all similar to many others we've seen before, these exact ones have never been viewed by the public before; consigned by the family of soldier who shot them 63 years ago.
