MARILYN MONROE: SUPERSTAR IN TRAINING
A rare collection of photographs of Marilyn Monroe – originally sent to the editor of TIME’s LIFE Magazine in 1949 – has surfaced.
Taken as she trained with singing, acting and dancing coaches, the images show a confident, bright-eyed star in the making.
Though the photographer, J.R. Eyerman was not immediately blown away by the then little-known actress, LIFE suggests that he must have seen something in her, some spark of potential that led him to capture the soon-to-be superstar as she practised.
