    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Mostly Never-Before-Seen Black and White Photographs from Korea, 1954. Twenty-three total, all vintage prints with a glossy finish, all shot by professional Army photographers as the versos of most have detailed text noting dates, places, and circumstances of MM's stops; the first three show MM coming to town (one with her, Joe DiMaggio, baseball great Lefty O'Doul, and his wife, Jean O'Doul, still in San Francisco); the next eight showing MM wearing pants and a bomber jacket as she's surrounded by soldiers; the next seven showing MM on stage; and the last five showing MM visiting soldiers in the hospital or in the chow line; most are quite rare and probably unseen since 1954, if at all.
    5" x 7"

    From the personal files of Jean O'Doul as consigned by her widower.
