Look at the different expressions on everyone as Marilyn arrives. The man directly behind Marilyn wearing the ribbon is extremely happy. The normally stoic New York City policemen are somewhat starstruck. And Marilyn looks radiant.
Later that night inside the theatre Marilyn Monroe and blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield would meet up. This was the only time the two stars were photographed together.
Marilyn Monroe was born 95 years ago on June 1, 1926 and only got to celebrate 36 birthdays. She’s been dead 59 years. Marilyn’s mother, Gladys outlived Marilyn by 22 years dying in 1984 at the age of 81.
