Marilyn Rediscovered



LIFE Magazine recently discovered some unpublished photos of a young 24 year old Marliyn Monroe. Shot by Ed Clark in 1950 in Los Angeles when she was virtually an unknown for the magazine where the editors didn't even know who she was. Two years later she would grace the cover of LIFE and became a household name. She looks so soft and natural in these photos. Unstressed by fame. If she were alive today, she'd be 83.

I have always loved the non-studio shots of Marilyn. These are some of the best. And I love the bikini top!
