Article du magazine Photography Mag en juin 1954 portant sur un reportage photos illustrant une interview de Marilyn par Earl Wilson.
Retranscription -incomplète- de l'article
Broadway columnist Earl Wilson is kind of a nice guy. He knows and loves show people, and has a special spot in his heart for the kids with the brassy hair, the brassy stare and the anxious expression that means they're not eating too well or too often. Marilyn Monroe used to be one of those kids and when she hit the top in just a few long strides, Earl was genuinely happy for her. But he knew that stardom can change people and wondered if the bright lights were dazzling the world's loveliest pin-up girl, so on a trip to Hollywood he went to see her, taking along his favorite camera and, as always, his beautiful and clever wife. Both Wilsons were completely surprised. This was indeed a new Marilyn. The frightened kid was gone. Here was a serene and confident woman. Earl was pleased to note that the famous Monroe curves were more gorgeous and curvy than ever. But what impressed him most was the good, practical sense taht's inside of that lovely, golden head. Marilyn told her old friend all about her dreams for Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc and pretty soon they were involved in a thoroughly complicated chat about incorporation, investments, production problems and what-not. Poor Earl's head was fairly spinning as he tried to keep up with the conversation - and at the same time believe this was really Marilyn Monroe spouting all this business talk. She had him so confused and fascinated that he almost forget to pull out his camera and ask for some exclusive shots. Marilyn sighed, pulled off her glasses, dropped her expression of intense concentration and pretty soon Earl was snapping happily away as a droppy-eyed sex siren lounged in front of his camera. We're lucky enough to have the pictures (aren't they luscious ones?) along with Earl's personal report of his session with The Monroe.
