    Marilyn Monroe Life Magazine (Life Magazine, 1952). Point of Purchase Poster (26.5" X 34.5").
    In March 1952, Marilyn Monroe had just become the talk of Hollywood for her anticipated standout performance in Don't Bother to Knock, for her first date with baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, and also for the news about her nude appearance in a men's calendar. That story had just come to light and Fox studios was trying to decide how to handle the situation. Monroe herself suggested that she just admit to posing for the pictures in 1949 when she was trying to pay her rent. It was the stuff that made headlines and Life Magazine came calling. The following month for the April 7, 1952 edition, the magazine gave Monroe the cover shot and the issue immediately became one of the highest selling in the company's history. The photo was done by Philippe Halsman and captured Monroe at her sexy and seductive best. Halsman would become one of Life's most prolific photographers, setting a record of being the photographer for 101 Life covers. It was Monroe's first cover for the magazine but certainly wouldn't be her last. This poster was created by Life Magazine to place in windows or at newstands wherever the magazine was sold. Minor edge wear and light tape stains on the verso are the only signs of handling to note. Rolled, Very Fine-.
