An absolutely breathtaking early 1950 studio photo of young up and coming actress Marilyn Monroe wearing a little black dress and striking a seductive glance at the photographer. Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is one of the best early images of Marilyn we have seen. Most likely taken by photographer S.C. Manatt from MGM, this was used to promote the film "Asphalt Jungle". For the collector who wants the best, this is from before she went to the classic platinum blonde look and images of this vintage are extremely rare! A full sized 8x10 image in great shape with some minor handling wear from age and a crease on the upper left corner.
