Hollywood Hills: 1952

Marilyn Monroe and Navy pilot snapped by Charlotte Brooks in 1952 for the Look magazine assignment "Helicopter View of L.A." Also, a nice lei. View full size.

Is there a bad photo of Marilyn?

I've yet to encounter it.

What

lei?

Darned lei!

I believe our intrepid pilot is not wholly copacetic with the unfortunate positioning of the lei. But we are nevertheless reminded here that Marilyn could front quite a nice appearance from any angle, even from below. How pretty she is!

Dropping in by helicopter was quite popular at this time. I remember numerous aerial descents by Santa Claus and even the Easter Bunny at the local shopping center which was conveniently located a stone's throw from Santa Monica airport.
