“Whether they said M.M. or merely Monroe…You always knew they were talking about the one and only…Marilyn!”
A fantastic Japanese B2 movie poster from the 1963 first year of release for Harold Medford’s Marilyn Monroe documentary “Marilyn”. This rare original film poster features gorgeous Japanese design highlighting of the most famous Marilyn images; memorable “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” pose. Beautiful to look at with lovely colours, this really is one of the finest Monroe posters you will find with the dark background perfect in offsetting the stunning single image of Monroe, an image you are absolutely drawn too. Originally flat/unfolded (as issued) and presented in excellent condition this original movie memorabilia represents a highly desirable example from Marilyn Monroe’s (all to brief) cinematic career.
Trivia: The film ends with and alternative version of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” filmed in CinemaScope.…more detail
