Old Hollywood: Marilyn Monroe as Clara Bow

I thought it's time to start a new feature on my blog. It is called "Old Hollywood", and I'm going to post something about classic films, actors, actresses and directors, many of whom are now forgotten, from time to time.

I don't know much about silent film actress Clara Bow, except that her life wasn't cheerful as she pretended. This photoshoot with Marilyn Monroe is also a play, which shows us that it is actresses' job to smile every time and seem to be happy, even if they don't feel like it.

These lovely pictures were made by talented photographer Richard Avedon.


  1. Lovely photoshoot. Interesting that they both were not happy. They're both are icons of their eras. And I do like Marilyn.

  2. Sugar has fond memories of Old Hollywood - please write more! She raises her glass (full of gin) to you!

  3. Wow! I didn't expect a response so fast!
    Thank you, I will definitely continue posting about Old Hollywood.
