Marilyn Monroe – Prince Press Reception (PPR-002)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • Marilyn Monroe Productions held a press conference at the Plaza Hotel to announce the upcoming production of The Prince and the Showgirl. The ballroom area was filled with photographers and reporters. Marilyn and Sir Laurence Olivier entered from a balcony, came down the stairs and sat at a large round table, proceeding to hold court with the gathered press. At some point during the evening, Marilyn leaned forward with laughter and the right spaghetti strap of her dress snapped, creating the first documented “wardrobe malfunction.” As always, Marilyn was unfazed; using her coat as a cape, she carried on.
