SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller at Coronado Beach


Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemon, Joe E. Brown, dir: Billy Wilder; United Artists. Marilyn Monroe and husband Arthur Miller greet fans and crew on the location set of SOME LIKE IT HOT while filming beach scenes at the Coronado Hotel.

The popular comedy of two musicians who witness the Valentine’s Day massacre, impersonate female musicians, join a band and travel to Florida to avoid the mob is a comedy classic. Monroe was pregnant during production and was a reason for a difficult shoot. Husband Miller may have been a help on the set. She would miscarry after production. She and Miller would stay together for a while, he writing the script for THE MISFITS for her soon after.

This photo has pencil notations on the verso as well as the stamp for magazine use. A note reads “From Tess Michaels, United Artists, 11/58”. Tess worked in the New York offices of United Artists. Some wear and use. There is a mended 1 in. tear at the bottom of the photo to the left of the bottom of Monroe’s robe, NEAR FINE.
