Photos of Marilyn Monroe Taken Six Weeks Before Her Death at the Bel Air Hotel

With Michelle Williams's new film "My Week With Marilyn" coming out, and a recent exhibit at Milk Gallery called "Picturing Marilyn", it seems Marilyn Monroe can still steal headlines and dominate the news almost 5 decades after her untimely death. "Norman Mailer, Bert Stern: Marilyn Monroe" is a book that combines text from Normal Mailer's 1973 biopic of Monroe with image from Bert Stern's 1962 Vogue magazine photoshoot with the actress six weeks before her death. The 278-page book starts at an asking price of $1,000, but for Marilyn fans, the piece of memorabilia may be worth it. [Art Info]
