Marilyn: August 1953

"Sex goddess" and "Canadian content" have been made to rhyme: Previously unpublished photos of Marilyn Monroe in Alberta, Canada, taken while she was filming River of No Return with Robert Mitchum, are now available for your consideration at the link (the previously published image, above, is included for illustrative purposes).

That top image should be captioned "The Birth of Duckface" (as in the Botticelli painting).

Interesting images at the link. Some of the areas in the Banff Springs hotel still look the same.

Duckface is a goddess whose time is almost upon us.

She had thick calves. I didn't know that, before.

You can't understand the appeal of high fashion models and now you reject Monroe for her "thick calves"?

You are a sad bastard, aren't you? I think you will find that you are.

I've read my comment over several times. I fail to see how rejection can be construed from my words. I simply stated an observation.

Monroe was a beautiful woman, I, given an opportunity, would have rejected no part of her.

And to clarify, I have no problem seeing the appeal of 'high fashion models'... but that is a bit different than commenting on the clothes they wear.

Sorry to have upset your applecart. I'll move on now.
