Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia. Marilyn (1926-1962) was a model, actress, and singer. In addition, she was a classy platinum blonde with a sexy voice and voluptuous figure. In 1953 she appeared in the centerfold of Playboy magazine. Additionally, she is well-known for her breathy rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song that she sang to President John F Kennedy. Consequently, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s.
Prior to her death, Marilyn completed 29 films and received three golden globes. Accordingly, even decades after her death, she is still considered one of the best movie stars of all time. The above images of Marilyn are featured on limited-edition collector plates which make them great memorabilia pieces. From left to right they are:
Isn’t it delicious?. The “flying skirt” image captured in 1954 by photographer Sam Show. It was taken during a movie shoot for the film “The Seven Year Itch”. Marilyn was crossing over a New York subway grating when the updraft from the subway passing below caused her skirt to blow suggestively above her knees. That’s when Marilyn exclaimed, “Isn’t it delicious?”. That iconic image captivated the world.
Everything About It Is Appealing. Marilyn is looking fabulous in her Travilla costume from the musical film “There’s No Business Like Show Business”. Incidentally “Everything About It Is Appealing” are lyrics from the film’s theme song.
Sultry Yet Regal. Marilyn was born Norma Jeane Mortensen on June 1, 1926. To celebrate her 65th anniversary, on June 1, 1995, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative 32-cent stamp of Marilyn Monroe looking seductively majestic.
