• Marilyn Monroe - The Prince and the Showgirl
A Vintage 1957 ORIGINAL negative featuring Marilyn Monroe getting dressed in "The Prince & the Showgirl " as captured by noted photographer Milton H. Greene on the set. Greene's work with Marilyn Monroe (whom he first met after shooting her for a layout for Look in 1953) changed the course of his career. The two struck up a friendship and, when Monroe left Los Angeles to study acting with Lee Strasberg in New York City, she stayed with Greene, his wife Amy and young son Joshua in Connecticut. Together with Greene, Monroe formed Marilyn Monroe Productions, a production company in an effort to gain control of her career.

Greene would go on to produce Bus Stop (1956) and The Prince and the Showgirl (1957). The two also collaborated on some 53 photo sessions, some of which became well known, including "The Black Sitting". Greene's photograph for one such sitting in 1954 featuring Monroe in a ballet tutu was chosen by Time Life as one of the three most popular images of the 20th century. A unique "ONE-of-a-KIND" negative by Greene that is THE actual one that made the publicity still at the time and is the only one in the world ! Please note: The negative comes with a 22” x 17” print on archival paper.

Signed and Numbered. The artwork will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity with matching holograms.
