The Rake’s Five Stages of Marilyn

The Rake is a bimonthly men’s fashion magazine for readers in the UK. In the February issue – with Oscar nominee Michelle Yeoh on the cover – there’s a 12-age article, ‘The Five Stages of Marilyn Monroe,’ including nine full-page photos. So what, according to writer Stuart Husband, are Marilyn’s five iconic moments?

  1. Newly signed to Twentieth Century-Fox, 1947
  2. Wearing a potato sack, 1951
  3. In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 1953
  4. On the grating for The Seven Year Itch, 1954
  5. Singing ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President,’ 1962

Elsewhere, Scott Harper reviews Some Like It Hot – and Marilyn also graces the contents page.
