Marilyn Monroe by George Barris, 1962. These were the last professional photographs taken of Marilyn before her death in August 1962.

She was a person of passion and great love, even when things were not going well for her. Sometimes I felt a sadness watching her, a beautiful girl who had achieved the impossible, a dream of all beautiful, talented girls - fame as an actress on the silver screen. I could see a sadness in her eyes; she had learned to smile, laugh, and clown, even though her heart was breaking. 

- George Barris in “Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words

“  Dean Martin became involved in Something’s Got to Give after Marilyn picked him; in some reports he had invested a personal stake in the production. Dean gallantly stood up for his friend after she was dismissed by 20th Century Fox. The studio hired Lee Remick as Marilyn’s replacement, but Dean invoked a clause in his contract allowing him approval of his opposite number, and informed the studio that he would not work with anyone except Marilyn on this picture. Fox sued Martin, Martin sued Fox, and then the picture was put back on track, to no small degree because of Dean’s intransigence and support for Marilyn.  ”

etheltheblog asked: Hey! I wanted to ask about that photoset of Marilyn. What movie is the one where the caption is ''Women who kick ass?'' The one where she's with a braid and all? Thank you! :)
