Item description for An Evening with Marilyn by Douglas Kirkland...

Perhaps it was her girlish, whispery voice; or the way her eyes danced when she smiled; or how she seemed to have an unearthly glow about her. Whatever the reason, Marilyn Monroe remains one of the most glamorous, seductive, and charming women in Hollywood history. Worshipped for her sexuality, adored for her vulnerability and innocence, Marilyn is a celebrated movie icon whose persona continues to enthrall and delight her loyal fans. Marilyn's ethereal beauty and irrepressible charisma are captured here in a sequence of sensual portraits taken over the course of one extraordinary evening in 1961 when she was thirty-five, just a year before her tragic death. On assignment for Look magazine to photograph the movie star for its twenty-fifth anniversary cover, Douglas Kirkland shot Marilyn in the intimate confines of an unmade bed. The result is a series of some of the most spontaneous and flirtatious photographs ever taken of this film legend. Moody, grainy, and evocative, these images are accompanied by Kirkland's own recounting of the story behind the photo shoot. Together his words and pictures tell the seductive tale of a brief and unforgettable encounter between a handsome freshman photographer and the sexiest woman in Hollywood history.
DOUGLAS KIRKLAND's career as an award-winning photographer spans five decades and six continents. His celebrity subjects have ranged from glamorous stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand to fashion icons such as Coco Chanel and Pierre Cardin. As a photojournalist he has traveled the world to shoot topics as varied as astronomy in Chile and fashion in Bali. Kirkland's photographs have appeared in numerous publications and been widely exhibited throughout Asia, Europe, and America. He has published ten books, including Light Years, Icons, Legends, Body Stories, and Woza Africa. In 2003, he received a Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Entertainment Photography. He lives and works with his wife, Françoise, in Los Angeles.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Evening with Marilyn?

Some of the best photos here from one of Marilyn's most sexiest sittings!  Mar 3, 2008
If you are looking for something diffrent you have not seen well here it is. The Doug Kirkland sitting from 1961 just a year before Marilyn's death is one of her not so well known photo sessions but one of her most beautiful and sexy. She looks like a blonde angel in these poses! I love the pink outline in the book also. A must have for true Mailyn fans!
Searching for more of Marilyn you haven't yet seen?  Jun 23, 2006
I have a huge collection of Marilyn books and came across this one of an intimate photographic session Douglas Kirkland did with Marilyn for Look magazine's 25th anniversary edition in 1961. Very much worth the purchase for Marilyn fans - the photos are stunning, Marilyn is stunning! The text is sparse with the occasional typo...but you aren't there for the photographer's text, are you? Marilyn is as lovely as ever, and I would love to see this book in a larger format one day as the rather small format does not do the beautiful images justice. Great behind-the-scenes photos as well. Definitely a book I will be adding to my collection and looking through in years to come.
blonde angel as usual...  Mar 8, 2006
Me, as a fan, having nearly all written and printed things about MM, it's always a joy to find some new items. The pix in this book are incredibly wonderful. If you like MM and don't have this book, go on and buy! You really will like these fine pictures, honoring the beauty of this legend....
