Marilyn and the Parade

Some of you may have seen this on my FaceBook fan page but I am committed to revisiting some great images in high quality on my new blog that you can click on to enjoy more detail. .
Pictured here is legend Marilyn Monroe.

The back story?
In 1952 Marilyn was visiting Atlantic City to promote a new film. When the Grand Marshall of the Miss America Parade became ill and could not attend the event the organizers asked the beautiful star to fill in. She obliged and caused quite a stir. The public loved her but based on the plunging neckline :) she was never asked back by the conservative pageant committee. Try to explain that to that sailor with the camera.
What a memory.
