So in love: Previously unseen photographs show how smitten Marilyn Monroe was with Joe DiMaggio



By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 7:01 PM on 25th September 2010 A collection of more than 100 previously unpublished photos of Marilyn Monroe can be seen for the first time in a new book.
'Marilyn: August 1953', published this week by Calla Editions, features digitally restored black and white images taken during the summer of 1953 of a then 27-year-old Monroe.

The photos were shot by John Vachon, on assignment for LOOK magazine in Alberta, Canada, where Monroe was filming 'River of No Return' with Robert Mitchum.


In love: Marilyn Monroe is clearly smitten with baseball legend Joe DiMaggio while in Alberta, Canada, in the summer of 1953


Playful: Marilyn Monroe jokes with children at a swimming pool. She was on a break from filming having injured her ankle

An injured ankle prevented Monroe from filming, allowing Vachon to have several days to shoot the Hollywood icon. Only three of photos from the sessions were published in an October 1953 LOOK story.

The book will feature photos of Monroe and then fiance, baseball legend Joe DiMaggio snuggling. Vachon is thought to be the only photographer the pair formally posed for.

In another of the pictures, a comically frightened-looking Monroe is in the clutches of a taxidermy bear.

Vachon's images of Monroe were included in the five million photograph archive donated to the Library of Congress after LOOK folded in 1971.


Mischief: Marilyn giggles as she playfully hugs a bearskin rug



Deep in thought: The collection of more than 100 previously unpublished photos of Monroe can be seen for the first time in a new book 'Marilyn: August 1953'



Acting: Marilyn looks frightened as she poses in the grip of a giant stuffed bear

Vanity Fair November 2010 : Marilyn Monroe by Milton H. Greene





Quote:
Marilyn and Her Monsters

For all the millions of words she has inspired, Marilyn Monroe remains something of a mystery. Now a sensational archive of the actress’s own writing—diaries, poems, and letters—is being published. With exclusive excerpts from the book, Fragments, the author enters the mind of a legend: the scars of sexual abuse; the pain of psychotherapy; the betrayal by her third husband, Arthur Miller; the constant specter of hereditary madness; and the fierce determination to master her art.

In the November issue, Vanity Fair published a previously unseen archive of Marilyn Monroe’s private writings. With narrative by contributing editor Sam Kashner, these notebooks cover the most tumultuous years—from around 1951 to 1961—of the young actress’s life. As Kashner points out, “[w]e have had Warhol’s Marilyn, Mailer’s Marilyn, Joyce Carol Oates’s fictionalized Marilyn, now finally we have Marilyn’s Marilyn.” Through the pages of Marilyn’s diaries, we see the whole arc of her tragic life: the transition from starlet to icon, her pursuit of true artistry beyond the “dumb blonde” she was pigeonholed as, and the troubled thoughts that followed her, from childhood, through three marriages, and, ultimately, to her final days. It is clear that the experience of writing was cathartic for her, providing a momentary grasp on the whirlwind of emotions that accompanied her life.

In the interests of science, VF.com had a professional graphologist (handwriting expert), Sheila Kurtz, examine a few of the documents found in the archive. And in the interests of good science, we declined to tell her whom she was analyzing—which did not prevent her from guessing that it was either Lindsay Lohan or Lady Gaga, the subjects of our last two covers.

This entry is from the first black “Record” notebook, which Marilyn kept around 1951, the year she would film Love Nest—a line from the script of which she jotted down on page 146. Not yet the star she would grow to be, Marilyn was finally beginning to appear in the credits of her onscreen roles.
