Dispatches from District 48
And she fills it out quite well...better than Carrie Fisher.
Great Theda Bara vibe.
People often underestimate her. She did the blonde bimbo well, but she had a presence you could see from the start. I'd call attention to the excellent classic The Asphalt Jungle, with one of her first appearances in a minor role... as a blonde bimbo.
It's a really great piece of film noir, one of the best -- well worth seeing just on its own.
It's also one of John Huston's best, and that's not from a particularly meager body of excellent work, either. If you aren't familiar with John Huston, you really don't appreciate film.

Theda Bara was actually a nice jewish goil from Cincinnati, and was kinda butt-ugly to boot. Clearly, *that* ain't Theda....Show us some Lulu. Or more MM.
I find it funny that I didn't know it was Marylin, but I knew it was Theda Bara. 🙂
What a photograph! Color, composition, lighting, subject, styling - wow.
Must be blog ratings week. Way to deliver the goods!
I wish she were standing upright. Carrie Fisher looked so good to me because of her belly and hips. Really great figure. Marilyn looks good, too. Thanks for the photo.
