Rare picture..Collapse )
I scanned this out of this book that I got at Borders on sale! The caption reads, "Onlookers laugh as Marilyn lights a super firecracker to start inaugal ceremonies at the reactivated Rockefeller Center Sidewalk Superintendents Club in New York. The firecracker triggered a dynamite blast in the excavation pit of the new 47-story Time & Life building nearby."

Isn't it beautiful? :)

Hi guys, I am new here- and I absolutely ADORE Marilyn Monroe! I have like a memorial thing of her up on my wall, with photos, poems, her films listed, her biography, and black roses- they're sooo pretty. They're only fake though- so they last! The main reason I got into her is because, my friend likes her so I decided to see what is so good about her- and I found out too! She is the best! She has brilliant acting skills, and has a beautiful singing voice, also is a beautiful woman! I can't believe noone in my family has sat down and spoke to me about her before! lol!

Hope I'm welcome!

Berlin fest to showcase '50s female stars

Mon Nov 14,10:10 PM ET

Pouting pinups and femme fatales will be the focus of the Berlin Film Festival's Retrospective, which will look at female film stars of the 1950s, organizers said Friday.

"Dream Girls: Film Stars of the Fifties," the 30th Berlinale Retrospective will feature 45 films starring such iconic Hollywood actresses as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.

European and Asian stars of the period, including France's Brigitte Bardot, Germany's Hildegard Knef, Japanese darling Setsuko Hara and Soviet starlet Tatyana Samojlova also will be featured.

"The theme is the image of women, as conveyed by international stars during the '50s," Retrospective director Hans Helmut Prinzler said in a statement. "Many actresses play self-confident characters, shaped by existential experiences, who want to assert themselves in a male-dominated world. This connects directly back to our first Retrospective in 1977, in which we honored Marlene Dietrich."

"On the one hand there was a sense of a new beginning and progress, on the other hand nostalgia and prudery," Berlin Festival director Dieter Kosslick said. "The images of women, personified by the great stars of the period, reflect the tensions of this decade."

The Retrospective screenings will take place at the CinemaxX theater on Potsdamer Platz and in Berlin's Zeughauskino. The Berlin Film Museum will hold a series of lectures and discussions to accompany the screenings and will feature an exhibit on Knef that will open November 24 and run until April 17.

The Retrospective runs parallel to the 56th Berlin International Film Festival, which runs February 9-19.

I think Marilyn's best photos are from the Misfits.
