"All About Eve" (20th Century Fox; 1950). SINGLE WEIGHT; 7 5/8" x 10". Rare Marilyn Monroe original portrait photo from her early appearance in the landmark 1950 Fox drama "All About Eve", a film nominated for 16 Academy Awards and considered today among the greatest films ever made. Monroe, an unknown at the time, plays Miss Caswell in a small but eye-catching role, ironically an aspiring buxom starlet wannabe.
The inexperienced Monroe was apparently so nervous and intimidated in doing a scene with Bette Davis that she vomited shortly thereafter! Photo is by noted studio photographer John Engstead.

A copy of this listing should be kept with the photograph as proof of provenance.
This photo is guaranteed VINTAGE AND ORIGINAL to the period it was taken. It is not a later restrike or modern print. It is not computer generated.
