Thank you, Mr. Joshua Greene, for permitting the use of these pictures here!
Marilyn’s career was just starting to take off when she befriended (Milton H.) Greene, who helped release her from a constricting studio contract, and joined her in creating an independent production company. From the years 1953 to 1957, Greene was instrumental in furthering Marilyn’s career – and making her one of the most famous women of her time.
Milton H. Greene (1922-1985) had already photographed some of the most famous faces of the forties and fifties when he met Marilyn Monroe on assignment for Look magazine. Together with Marilyn he established Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc, which produced a number of films, including “Bus Stop.”
