Remembering Marilyn’s Thanksgiving Follies

Wishing our readers in the USA a happy Thanksgiving weekend, even if this year’s celebrations will be quieter than usual.  This photo session (circa 1950) was one of Marilyn’s zanier assignments, typical of the festive pin-ups studios churned out for the holiday season, enlisting their prettiest starlets as (mostly) willing stooges. Clad in a rather scanty Pilgrim’s outfit and clinging to her rifle, poor Marilyn looks more scared of the turkey than vice versa! The latest issue of French e-zine Crazy For You explores this session further, while Marilyn’s turkey stuffing recipe is demonstrated in the latest episode of YouTube series Hollywood Kitchen.
