A Vintage 1950 Original Photograph featuring a rare early swimsuit shot of Marilyn Monroe. Captured at the time she went from another cheesecake pin-up model into a glamour queen and eventually the world's most famous movie star. Reverse has several date stamps from the 1950's as well as some editorial markings as the photo was subjected to newspaper publication use over the years and has some handling wear on the surface. Overall, this is a very nice early period photograph of Marilyn at the time her star was on the rise !
