Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!


June 1st, 2016 would’ve been Marilyn Monroe’s 90th Birthday. In celebration of her birthday, the Archives is releasing this unseen and unpublished photo by Milton H. Greene. Taken for a Life Magazine feature on Asian gowns, Milton photographed Marilyn in his New York Studio March 28, 1955. Marilyn always had a bond with her pets and, in particular, a special affinity for small dogs. Her beloved French Poodle, Maf, was a gift from Frank Sinatra and a constant companion until her death in 1962.
