Marilyn Monroe fans can now see long-lost footage of the Hollywood icon shot by photographer Milton H. Greene.
According to Vanity Fair, “beginning July 16, the Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel will display some of Greene’s never-before-seen photos from these sessions in its “Some Like It Hot” exhibit. The presentation will also feature 16-mm-film footage (previewed above), showing Monroe in rare and relaxed form—mostly out of the spotlight. Among the moments Greene captured: a cheerful Monroe kissing her third husband, Arthur Miller, and greeting guests at the couple’s 1956 wedding reception; Monroe performing a musical number in the 1956 romantic comedyBus Stop; and the beauty preening between the sheets for an intimate photo shoot.”
Greene is best known for capturing some of the greatest stars of the 1950s and 1960s in his enduring portraits, including Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and Paul Newman but is most famous for his images of Monroe.
The exhibit will run through July 24.
