1962 Marilyn Monroe Original Photo George Barris Santa Monica Beach Stamped
Note: last photo is of an article about the re-discovery of these photos by George Barris in the 1980’s. Article not included, for reference only. This has the rare Red stamp on back which have superior clarity and vividness then the black back-stamp ones one typically finds with his 8×10 photos. I think this is because George Barris produced these first from his original negative back in the 80’s when these came out and as time went on and he kept producing from his original negative the quality decreases. There were only 2500 of these produced and to have some of the first ones produced from his negative as this one was is extremely rare. Color gelatin silver or chromogenic. Produced from the original negative or transparency in the 80’s. Here Marilyn is in a gorgeous pose, carefree and happy, standing on the sand with such a cute smile on her face wearing her famous robe. Rare shot-One of the “last photos” ever to be taken of the young starlet.

Taken shortly before Marilyn’s passing in June of 1962. Barris went shopping for Marilyn before this shooting and is quoted in his book as saying On my shopping spree for Marilyn, I went to two of her favorite stores, Jax on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, and Saks Fifth Avenue. At Jax I bought her some beautiful slacks and decorative Emilio Pucci sport shirts. When Marilyn & Barris got to Tim’s house, Barris introduced him and his maid, Louise, to Marilyn. Louise became so nervous when Marilyn shook her hand that she fluttered and stuttered, saying, Is that really you? No one will believe me when I say I met and shook hands with Marilyn Monroe. I can hardly believe it myself. Is that really you? ” Marilyn, laughing, replied, “Sometimes I can hardly believe it, too.
