Marilyn is mentioned twice in the latest issue of UK nostalgia mag Yours Retro (#48, with Doris Day on the cover.) Firstly, one of her early pin-ups for Laszlo Willinger is featured in ‘Strike a Pose,’ an article about the great photographers of classic cinema. Ernest Bachrach and Cecil Beaton, who also worked with Marilyn, are listed among the masters of glamour portraiture.
Secondly, one of Hollywood’s finest character actresses is profiled in this issue. Thelma Ritter appeared in three Monroe films: All About Eve, As Young As You Feel, and The Misfits. (A biography, Thelma Ritter: Hollywood’s Favourite New Yorker, is forthcoming from author Christy Putnam.)
And finally, the remarkable career of director Fritz Lang is also featured, although his work on Clash By Night isn’t mentioned specifically.
