Milton's Marilyn: The Photographs of Milton H. Greene

In a series of skillful maneuvers Greene freed Marilyn from the shackles of her slave contract with Twentieth Century-Fox and formed their independent production company - Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc.

Overview

In the mosaic that forms the seemingly immortal image of Marilyn Monroe this is probably the last, and certainly the finest, previously unpublished piece: the photographs of Milton H. Greene, from 1953 to 1957 Marilyn's photographer, artistic adviser, and business partner. In a series of skillful maneuvers Greene freed Marilyn from the shackles of her slave contract with Twentieth Century-Fox and formed their independent production company - Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. Thanks to this coup, she was at last able to command commensurate fees, choose her own vehicles, and triumph in Bus Stop and The Prince and the Showgirl, giving under Milton's tutelage her finest performances. The singular relationship between the celebrated photographer and the box-office blonde, illuminated for the first time by James Kotsilibas-Davis's original text, was intense and extremely fruitful. At times Marilyn even lived with Milton's family, finding the secure professional and personal base that she so desperately needed for her work and her emotional well-being. Their collaboration broke up in 1957, when Marilyn's third husband, playwright Arthur Miller, became involved in his wife's business affairs. Embittered, Milton Greene withdrew from MMP and refused to allow anyone to examine or publish the bulk of his Marilyn photos before his death in 1985. Disputes over his estate considerably delayed publication of this treasure trove of Marilyn images. This volume contains a rich selection of Milton H. Greene's photographs, most of which have never been published before. They present Marilyn Monroe at the zenith of her physical beauty - she never looked so erotic, elegant, or vulnerable, as she did to Milton's unerring "eye."

Top fashion photographer Milton Greene first met Marilyn in 1953. Throughout the next five years, the two became close friends and collaborated in many photo shoots. This loving, lavishly illustrated book contains over 125 never-before-published photos that bring out an extraordinary depth and vulnerability in Monroe.

    Norma Jean & Marilyn

    I have been researching Marilyn Monroe ever since I first learned about her in high school through the rumored affair with Pres. Kennedy. I've watched biographies and read many books and through all of this I've concluded that if she were still alive today she'd be more popular than Elizabeth Taylor.

    Candle In the Wind

    The pictures of Marilyn seemed to bring her back to life from a tragic and unnecessary death. I have been amazed and shocked by Marilyn Monroe's life and how a sweet and simple country girl like Norma Jean Baker could get sucked in to a life where she felt she was always needing to be perfect. Milton portrayed Marilyn as herself and as the Goddess Hollywood created. Truly a tribute to her and a never ending dream of perfection. For as long as I can remember I have always hung pictures of Marilyn in my home and in my office she inspired me to be the best I can be,and always to love life to the fullest. It was very important to Marilyn to find love, and she did many times in the love of her fans...Arque

    It Shows the truth

    It showed Marilyn self in the pictures but what is so sad, was Marilyn was the end to Norma Jean Baker, She was beautiful, she was gorgeous, but did she ever really feel it? I doubt it. Beauty means nothing unless you believe it. She has made progress for woman today in some ways, to explore there sexuality and to be okay with it, even though in reality others were the one who pushed her to be so sexual. I find the way she made her career, almost sad and I pity her for her life. I am happy to say though that her memory lives on even to the youth of this generation, so her moral truly has set a impact on our society. Thank You Marilyn Monroe, I'm sorry Norma Jean

    Venus.........Marilyn..........A Legend!

    I have always admired Marilyn Monroe for her girl like innocence, her breath taking beauty. She is Venus of modern times. A Goddess and Woman, Illusion and Reality in one. In Milton Greene's outstanding photographs Marilyn's innocent and sexy beauty is captured forever. A model like her is a Godsend for every photographer. A chance in a lifetime. Happy Birthday Sweetheart....... I also customize dolls. Please see www.angelfire.com/stars2/present/marilyn.html Thanks!

    My Friend Marilyn

    For as long as I can remember Marilyn has been an idol to me. I have collected many, many of things about her. Milton Green not only captured the essence of Marilyn Monroe, but the girl behind her,Norma Jean. My one wish is that 'they' Marilyn and Norma Jean could have found the happiness and love that she sought after. My one regret is that I was not alive to meet this mystical creature that left this world before her and my time.

    Marilyn your still the leading Lady

    1st I would like to thank Milton Greene for the picture's he has restored of Marilyn and been able to show us this is one Lady I have always looked up to and have acted like and pretened to be. I think she did not take her life and that it should be looked into and we all know or think who had something to do with it. she just wanted to be loved and needed I did hear that she did have a child at one time She could of came so far in Life ......

    A Shining Star Never Forgotten

    I have been collecting Marilyn antiques for a long time. Words cannot describe how she inspires me everyday. I have over 20 pictures of Marilyn in my house and believe that she was and still is the prettiest girl in the world. Happy be-lated birthday Marilyn and I wish I was alive back then and had a chance to meet her. Also, my boyfriend feels the same way I do about Marilyn and Milton's work. In regards to Milton... AWESOME, totally and completely AWESOME work.

    The Most Beautiful Girl in the World

    Milton Greene was able to capture the little girl in Marilyn Monroe as no other. Although she certainly was a woman, and the most womanly of any other Hollywood star, Greene caught that babysweet sexiness that made Marilyn so unbelievably goddess-like to us. She allowed herself to be intimate to us, even though that intimacy cost her. She gave too much to us, and we lost her. Greene photographed her at a time when there was the hope of joy forever. When we still believed forever. Happy Birthday, Marilyn. Please take care of those babies in heaven that you never could have. They need you, and we will always have the need to treasure you!

    BLONDE SIREN INFLUENTIAL BEAUTY

    As time goes by she reamins a beauty that still commands attention as though she still is here! With her gone we see hollywood stars trying to get close to portraying marilyn, what all must acknowledge there was only one MM and coming close to being a natural blonde bombshell can only occur if God brought her down to us for a day of beauty which would make the world a better place and smiles worldwide! From my lips to gods ears...Her beauty reigns as a supreme goddess of love, beauty and sultry, sexual personae only through the eyes of Marilyn.
