Marilyn Monroe – Hooker Sitting (H-009)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • More images from Milton and Marilyn’s 20th Century Fox back lot sessions. This time Marilyn vamps it up as a streetwalker. Milton believed in Marilyn’s range as an actress and on this Sunday, the two took on a number of characters to portray her diversity. Note the fishnet stockings, introduced first in the Black Sitting, and the blouse, which became the performing costume when she sang “That Ol’ Black Magic” in Bus Stop. Later, Madonna would copy this series for her Like a Virgin promotion. Pin_it_button
