  It is probably common to underestimate how much Marilyn's enduring appeal was due to who she was before she became a star. Norma Jeane Mortensen was discovered by a photographer with the U.S. Army's public relations department when she was working at a Southern California munitions factory. It led to a successful modeling career, and eventually to movie roles, securing her iconic legacy. With resolve and awareness, she did what was necessary (including changing her appearance) in order to become 'Marilyn Monroe'. But as an example of endearing charm and natural beauty, Norma Jeane didn't need to change a thing.

Thank you so much! I used a black and white photo, but her outfit was a bit 'busy' with patterns and rather distracting, so I went with solid hues. :grin: :whip: :grin: :hi:

An underrated actress, but she very convincingly conveyed enjoyment for posing, particularly in the early days. :grin: :whip: :grin:

Many thanks Tom .. we're fortunate to have such an extensive supply of 'pre-Marilyn' photos as she was in such high demand, even very early on. :grin:

Of all people, it was future U.S. President Ronald Reagan who sent a photographer to the plant where teenage Norma Jeane was working, hoping to find attractive subjects for military propaganda publications. Arguably (I would say, definitely) Mr. Reagan's greatest contribution to society. (Norma Jeane, not the propaganda!) :grin: :grin: :grin:

That was probably an accidental contribution. I think that society owes more to Mae West's influence on Marylin's "glamorous peroxide blonde" style than to Mr Reagan's propaganda ideas. Her breakthrough in the movie world also owed to the photographers who encouraged her to become a (not always dressed) model. 8-) :ok: :ok:

Apparently the factory owner (a friend of his) informed Reagan that there were some potentially photogenic young ladies working at the plant, so good on Ron for not ignoring that tip! Pretty remarkable that MM was able to overcome the scandal of that famous calendar shoot, and even benefit from it. I have read of her fascination with Jean Harlow, whose story had some parallels with Marilyn's. :)
