1951 Early pin-up photograph of actress and model Marilyn Monroe in a red swimsuit and high heeled shoes and posing with large sticks of dynamite, symbolic of her red-hot status in the industry. A stunning image that is from one of her most famous early photo-shoots, this is a crystal clear piece of early pin-up photography and it presents well with some light creasing from news-room handling. Dated on the back from 1953 (file date) and the first example of this image we have ever seen!
