INFAMOUS PRESS CONFERENCE SHOT (VINTAGE 8x10). This is the notorious and infamous shot of Marilyn Monroe at a press conference in Mexico City in the early 1960s.The reason it is so infamous is it gave the world an answer to the question of whether she wore under garments. The story goes that it was taken by a photographer at the news conference and he didnt know what he had until he developed the roll. Imagine his amazement when he printed this one! This photograph is vintage and 55 years old.
I bought it off the family that had had it since 1962. They had it 42 years and Ive had it for 13 years. Its origin was sumarised by the family that I bought from as follows. It was originally with a friend of my fathers who lived in San Antonio, whose name and address can be read on the envelope, which is included with the photograph. Since the subject matter was rather scandalous at the time, my fathers friend did not want it in the house because his wife would not understand.So he sent the photograph along with the original mailing envelope from Mexico, to my father soon after he received it in 1962. On the postmark can be read Mexico 18 D. F and NOV62, and the return address reads Apdo Postal 29951, Mexico, 18, D. This is an 8x10 glossy photograph. The photograph has gone very slightly off-white or yellowed which also helps to authenticate its age. This is a unique piece of history and a must for any Marilyn Monroe fan!
Would look great matted and framed up. Has been carefully stored in my dry and smoke free home for 13 years. It comes with the original envelope it was mailed in all those years ago. A great piece of Marilyn history and story. A shame to part with it but hopefully it passes on to a Marilyn Monroe fan to be enjoyed and treasured.
