BUS STOP (1956) Marilyn Monroe BTS photo
Vintage original 10 x 8” (5 x 20 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marilyn Monroe, Don Murray, Arthur O’Connell, Betty Field, Eileen Heckart, Hope Lange, dir: Joshua Logan; Twentieth Century Fox. Perhaps Marilyn Monroe’s most touching performance. Made under her production company it is one of her finest screen efforts. Newcomer Don Murray was outstanding and was nominated for an Academy Award. The film also featured great character performances and the debut of Hope Lange. Well remembered for Monroe’s painfully vulnerable rendition of the song “That Old Black Magic,” as she portrayed the saloon singer Cherie. A George Axelrod screenplay from William Inge’s play, it is the story of a naïve and determined cowboy who becomes infatuated with and falls in love with a saloon singer and who will stop at nothing to marry her and take her away. Here is a behind the scenes glimpse of Monroe on the set while filming on location in Sun Valley, Idaho. She is captured by a local photographer, Al Brack. Minor crease and tear at bottom left corner, minor creasing along left blank white margin. ABOUT FINE.
