young marilyn monroe

Do you recognize her?

I did not – I think it’s the hairstyle. It’s Marilyn Monroe. This is an early headshot (back when she had just changed her name from Norma Jeane). Her neighbor, Phil Hooper, in West Hollywood asked her to sign a copy for him. The inscription reads ““To Phil Best Wishes Always Sincerely Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane).”
