    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Snapshots, 1955. Twenty-one total, all original prints with a glossy finish, depicting the star wearing a gold lamé gown, a black fur coat, and black gloves as she arrives with Milton Greene at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC to attend a Friar's Club dinner on March 11, 1955 (which honored Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin), MM is seen either alone or among others (including Milton Berle), some snapshots are clear, others are out of focus, in three different sizes; though these images have been seen, these are the original snapshots developed and printed in 1955; from the personal collection of James Collins, one of the 'Monroe Six' -- the group of young kids who followed Marilyn around NYC so often that the star ended up knowing them all by name and allowing them special access to her (like letting them take countless pictures and giving them numerous autographs). (Please note there is black paper remnants on the back from when they were in a scrapbook.)
