Connect The Dots- Was Marilyn Monroe A Snow Bunny With Soul?
For public record, the CBS news article was initially published on March 11, 2009, yet as of July 2013, the article link is no longer active and this rare image can only be found through a diligent online search.
A new, previously unseen photo of screen legend/icon/goddess/sex kitten/ Marilyn Monroe has emerged.
The photo was found in the “Lost Collection” of clothing designer William Travilla’s, an Oscar-winning costumer who dressed nearly 300 starts in his illustrious career.
The new photo shows Marilyn, circa 1952, with Travilla and an unidentified Black man. The photo, coming on the heels of Marilyn’s controversial nude photos, was scandalous at the time…a white starlet being photographed with a black man!) The man was often cropped out of the little seen photo. And the mystery remains…who was that man?
For more information about this photo and a touring exhibit of Travilla’s designs and works, click here.
White folks are freaking out trying to find out who this black man is, why she was in a black club in South Central La and why is she sitting that close to a black man.lol That was a no no for white starlets back in the day. The guy in the photo aint bad looking, he kinda reminds me of Leon Robinson from the five heartbeats.
