A series of limited edition prints of iconic star Marilyn Monroe have emerged. In one of the newly-released images, Marilyn was seen quite different from her bombshell title and glamorous life as she showed her relaxed side in a white shirt and twin plaited pigtails. The shot was taken on set of her 1961 film "The Misfits".
Still on the set of "The Misfits", Marilyn posed for a black-and-white image, which is called "Marilyn And Friend", showing her in a nice polka-dot dress while carrying a puppy. Other shots show more beauties of Marilyn when she read a movie script between takes, when she stood gracefully with towel wrapping her upper-body and also when she chatted with her co-star Montgomery Clift at a trailer.
The shots were taken by American photojournalist Eve Arnold at the peak of Monroe's fame in the late 1950s and early 60s. Of the collection, the 98-year-old photojournalist said, as quoted by Daily Mail, "She liked my pictures and was canny enough to realize that they were a fresh approach for presenting her."
"A looser, more intimate look than the posed studio portraits she was used to in Hollywood," Eve added. "It became a bond between us... Marilyn was very important in my career. I think I was helpful in hers too."
