Marilyn Covers ‘Down Town’ in Greece

Yet another European magazine tribute to Marilyn on the 60th anniversary of her death, Down Town magazine’s September issue (#37) is now available in Greece. The cover photo was shot by Mischa Pelz in 1952, as part of a commercial layout for Deeco lawn furniture. According to Pelz, Marilyn had known him for some time and did the shoot as a friendly favour. The photos were rediscovered many years later by Pelz’s former assistant (who had purchased his studio), after a California earthquake when they tumbled off the shelf.
