Marilyn Monroe – Swimming Pool (SP-06)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • Taken in Connecticut in 1956, this image of a young freckle-faced star reveals an intimate side seen only by few. During the summer, Marilyn and the Greene family would go a mile down the road to the home of Richard Rogers and end a hot summer day with a cool swim in their pool. 

Wearing a red blow-up ring life preserver around her neck, Marilyn smiles playfully while holding onto the side of the pool in her black and white checkered bikini bathing suit.Pin_it_button
