    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Photographs, Circa 1947. Three total, all original prints with a matte finish; all showing MM in an outdoor setting next to Aviv Wardimon (who later changed his last name to 'Blackman'); according to his distant relatives who consigned this lot, he was a security guard at one of the movie studios (most probably 20th Century Fox) who evidently struck up a friendship with the then-starlet as these images seem to indicate; also included is one extra black and white photograph of Wardimon with actor John Carroll (who is wearing a period tuxedo on a movie lot) -- coincidentially, Monroe was living with Carroll and his wife at this time. (Please note there is handwriting in blue or black ink or typed text on the verso of some; there is a small tear on the bottom margin of one; and sadly all were shot somewhat blurry.)
    10" x 8"
