Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!

Guess who would’ve been 85 today? (French poster by Boris Grinsson)

River of No Returns!

Although it’s not a super popular Marilyn Monroe film, the movie poster for River of No Return surely begs to differ…in all its different versions!

Guess Again!

All this guessing around made me think of Claudia Schiffer and pre-reality show tragic figure, Anna Nicole Smith.

Remember when those two blonde bombshells channeled Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe for Georges Marciano’s Guess Jeans ad campaign? You couldn’t look at a billboard or pick up a magazine in the early 90’s without seeing photographer Ellen Von Unwerth’s luscious, cinematic black-and-whites of these babes. And no doubt the world is better for it!

Monroe For Sale

If you’re into Hollywood history and have a few extra million smackers lying around, you can now buy the house in which Marilyn Monroe died! Okay, I know, it’s a bit morbid, but the landscaping and interiors do look very nice…(The French posters for Some Like It Hot, The Seven Year Itch, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Marilyn were all done by the great Grinsson!)
