Marilyn Monroe

This year Marilyn Monroe would have been 90 years old. An exhibition in the New Church in Amsterdam shows many personal belongings of her, which were stored together after her death in 1962 for decades and left untouched by the heirs. 37 years later an auction started at Christie's in New York, followed by a series of other auction houses. A large part was purchased by Monroe collector Ted Sampler and those items are shown now in the exhibition.

The start looked spectacular.

With sweet childhood photo's.



A cardigan.

The curlers she used.

Several film scripts.

The famous dress of "the Seven year itch" movie



Her notebook.

Fanmail.

And a dress for an opening night.

The end.

  5. That must have been an amazing exhibition. In our minds Marilyn is always young! Just cannot imagine what she would look like at 90.

  6. Thanks for this glimpse into the exhibition Marianne.. she was a bit of an enigma, so beautiful and so fragile..I definitely don't think she was a stereotypical dumb blonde.. I really dislike that expression ­čśŐ

  7. Rather like the Princess of Wales some people remain glamourous forever and never become old.

  8. Despite the dumb blonde image she often portrayed in movies she had a high IQ in the 160's, higher than Albert Einstein. She was a rabid book reader too. Sadly through much of her life she struggled with depression. For me she will always be one of the most beautiful women there was. I'd love to have her notebook but I'll settle for a hair curler.

  17. I think Marilyn would have aged gracefully, and I think her beauty would have followed her into her golden years. What a beautiful collection.
