Marilyn Monroe

In 1949, Marilyn Monroe, struggling to make ends meet as an actress, got paid $50 to pose nude for a calendar. She worked as a pinup and — according to some — as a prostitute before becoming an internationally recognized sex symbol & box office sensation.

Her undeniable charisma, comedic genius, and iconic sensuality enchant and resonate with old pros and civilians alike. Over fifty years after her death, we’re still obsessed with her.
