Marilyn Monroe – Graduation (GD-11)

May 1956 — Marilyn, Milton and Amy went over to Sydney Guilaroff’s mansion. He was the preeminent hairdresser at MGM and there wasn’t a star who didn’t go through Sydney’s hands. Although still working on Bus Stop, they were beginning preproduction for The Prince and the Showgirl, which commenced filming months later in London. That day’s work was to try different hairstyles. This series got its name because Milton printed one of the pictures from this sitting as a 6×8 oval vignette, which looked like an old-fashioned graduation picture. Marilyn dubbed it the high school picture she never had.
