Marilyn Monroe’s Sexy Photos Remind You Why She’s Still A Superstar.
You may not know the name of the movie as being The Seven Year Itch, but you know the iconic image. Sexy and sensual Marilyn Monroe holding on to her dress as her skirts is blowing up, showing off her stunning legs. Rather than be embarrassed at the inconvenience, Monroe thrived in the moment. She giggled, flirted, and enjoyed the attention.
The iconic photo on Lexington Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Street in New York City, was taken on September 15, 1954. Many women famous and un-famous have tried to replicate the effortless, provocative, and seductive aura Monroe had but not one has ever come close. She had a tumultuous personal life but 55 years after her sudden death in 1962, the legend of Marilyn lives on.
"Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she’ll conquer the world," was one of Monroe's famous quotes.
Filmmaker Billy Wilder wanted extra publicity for his film, The Seven Year Itch.
He made it public they would be shooting a scene in New York City. Crowds descended to watch the Hollywood goddess in action.
Jules Schulback was one of the people who flocked to get a glimpse of Monroe. The actual scene that made it in the movie was re-shot in a Hollywood, California studio.
Professional baseball player and Monroe's husband at the time, Joe DiMaggio, hated her dress and walked off set.
The New York Yankee player was extremely jealous. He had hoped after they married, Monroe would settle down and leave her professional career.
Jules Schulback filmed Monroe with his 16-millimeter Bolex movie camera.
The film was discovered by his granddaughter, Bonnie Siegler, and her husband while they were looking for videos of family trips and bar mitzvahs in 2004. The family says they always heard of Schulback's recount of the nigh he filmed Monroe. No one believed him as they never saw the video.
Siegler screened the film for the family, and then for a group of around 100 people.
Now, a short clip from the film is available for people outside the family to see for the first time. The original short film lasts 3 minutes and 17 seconds and features humorous title cards which Schulback had spliced in.
