    Marilyn Monroe Nude Photo Proof. Breathtaking and legendary 12" x 13" photo proof of a nude Marilyn Monroe, from the famed "Golden Dreams" calendar. The iconic picture was taken May 27, 1949 by photographer Tom Kelley, when Marilyn was 22 years old; within a few years, the calendar was the delight of gas stations everywhere. After Marilyn became a 20th Century-Fox star and was asked if she truly had posed for this picture with nothing on, she famously replied, "Nothing on but the radio!" Proof has "Posed by Marilyn Monroe" printed to the left of her derriere; bottom border reads, "No. 1427 - Golden Dreams - U.I. Co., N.Y. - Made in U.S.A." Excellent condition.
