The Eternally Exquisite Marilyn Monroe

Today, id like to treat you to some images of a young, beautiful 24 year old Marilyn Monroe.

These photographs were taken by LIFE photographer Ed Clark and were shot in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park in the August of 1950. 

These photos haven’t seen the light of day for over 50 years, but today, here they are for you to enjoy.

(Above) This is my favourite one, she looks so relaxed, happy and hopeful. 

Ed Clark revealed in a 1999 interview with Digital Journal; 

‘We’d go out to Griffith Park and she’d read poetry. I send several rolls to LIFE in New York, but they wired back, “Who the hell is Marilyn Monroe?’’’
