Marilyn Monroe channels her saloon singer character Kay Weston in this seldom seen publicity still for Otto Preminger’s Western with songs. Monroe wore period hairstyles in the film but for publicity donned her contemporary style, making this a timely pin-up pose. The bustier is seen briefly in the film when Monroe changes clothing.
