    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Never-Before-Seen Black and White Photographs from Korea, 1954. Six total, all vintage prints with a glossy finish, appearing to have been shot by a professional photographer due to quality and clarity (MM is in great focus in all shots); first one shows MM with a soldier and her travel companion, Jean O'Doul [then wife of baseball great, Lefty O'Doul], verso has stamp reading in part "Date 27/2/54;" second one shows MM on stage with band members; and the last four show MM wearing pants and a bomber jacket as she is engulfed by a massive amount of soldiers, most of whom seem to have cameras pointing at her -- apparently they all got word Marilyn was coming to town! (Please note the first photo of MM, soldier, and O'Doul has surface scratches.)
    3 3/4" x 4 1/2"

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