Marylin Monroe pictures must be the most popular search on the internet. And what if I told you can find here exclusive images of her from her last movie set, the famous skinny dip we taught we'll never get to see?Â If there weren't for her tragic death because of the barbiturates overdose, Marilyn Monroe's last movie would have been Something's Gotta Give. And of course the scene that griped all the media's attention was the infamous pool scene, where Marilyn tosses off her clothes to swim in a flesh-colored bikini bottom, and then, laughing, she ditches that one too and thus shocked the whole America and, well we can even say - the world. She was mesmerizing "the sweet angel of sex" as Norman Mailer wrote, âand the sugar of sex came up from her like a resonance of sound in the clearest grain of a violin.â
On May 19, 1962, she attended the early birthday celebration of President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden, at the suggestion of Kennedy's brother-in-law, actor Peter Lawford. Monroe performed "Happy Birthday" along with a specially written verse based on Bob Hope's "Thanks for the Memory". Kennedy responded to her performance with the remark, "Thank you. I can now retire from politics after having had 'Happy Birthday' sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way.
Because of her missing shooting days, battling bronchitis, skipping out to New Yorkâs Madison Square Garden to sing âHappy Birthdayâ to JFK â Marilyn was fired from the set. She was then re-hired after her co-star Dean Martin refused to work with any other actress, but she died tragically from an overdose of barbiturates before she could finish the movie. During her stormy last days, she gave a few tell-all interviews to different magazines. During on of these interviews she said one of her most famous and often quoted sentences: "Fame is fickle and I know it. It has its compensations, but it also has its drawbacks and I've experienced them both."
