Marilyn in ‘Yours Retro’: From Fan Mail to the Monroe Six

This photo of Marilyn reading her fan mail, taken by Slim Aarons in late 1951 or early 1952, is featured in an article about stars and their followers in the October issue of UK nostalgia mag Yours Retro (#31, with Natalie Wood on the cover.) Her association with the Monroe Six, a group of teenage fans after she moved to New York in 1955, is also mentioned, including the sale of Jimmy Collins‘ archive of candid photos in 2016. The next issue of Yours Retro (due November 26) will include a more intimate story: ‘Marilyn’s whirlwind affair – the love triangle and very public scandal,’ probably referring to her dalliance with Yves Montand while filming Let’s Make Love (1960.)
