I Also Recommend:
This book is a treasure for any Marilyn fan but I think would also be of interest to the general public. The photos are the long lost results of a 1953 Look magazine shoot. The Black and white photos were taken while Marilyn was in Canada on location for the "River of no Return."
While some of the photos are posed, most are candid shots of Marilyn giving the reader a glimpse behind the scenes of this iconic star at the height of her career. I found myself taking my time as I paged through the book. There is a quality about Marilyn that is arresting, she makes you look, even more so in the candid shots. For more insight into Marilyn I am looking forward to "Fragments" to be released next week (Lost diaries of Marilyn's). And for a look into the making of Marilyn's last film I highly recommend "Misfits Country."
