When LIFE Magazine Received Pics Of Still-Unknown Marilyn Monroe, They Replied “WTH Is Marilyn Monroe”

The photos were taken in 1950 with a still unknown Marilyn, by a Life Magazine photographer Ed Clark, at the suggestion of a friend of 20th Century Fox telling of the new hiring of the studios.

“I sent several rolls to LIFE in New York, but they wired back, ‘Who the hell is Marilyn Monroe?” – Ed Clark.

No one at that time could have even imagined how iconic Marilyn will become.
