These photos were taken in 1950 by Life Magazine photographer Ed Clark who got a call from a friend at 20th Century Fox about a “hot tomato” the studio had just signed.

His pictures of Marilyn offer a rare glimpse into the early days of an eventual pop-culture icon’s career when a young actress was unaware of what the coming years would bring.
