Norma Jeane âgée de 15 ans, à la plage de Santa Monica en Californie en juillet 1941: il s'agit des première images filmées de la future Marilyn Monroe, un film de famille filmé ici par la famille Howell, des amis et voisins de Grace Goddard.
Chester et Doris Howell ont trois filles: l'aîné et deux jumelles (Loralee et Doralee). Les films de famille montrent Norma Jeane avec la famille Howell, s'amusant à faire la roue sur le sable; à jouer dans les vagues de l'océan; à faire la ronde en marchant sur le sable.
Des années plus tard, Mme Howell témoignera dans un documentaire de cette période: "C'était une fille adorable et nous l'aimions. (..) C'était merveilleux de l'avoir à la plage avec nous. Elle était simplement une adolescente joyeuse, jouant dans l'eau, faisant juste des roues sur le sable, s'amusant vraiment. Nous avons acheté son premier maillot de bain, elle était vraiment douce."
Quand à Marilyn, elle racontera plus tard en interview: "J'adorais jouer avec les enfants du quartier".

Norma Jeane aged 15, at Santa Monica beach in California in July 1941: these are the first films footage of the future Marilyn Monroe, a home movie filmed by the Howell family, friends and neighbors of Grace Goddard.
Chester and Doris Howell have three daughters: the oldest and two twins (Loralee and Doralee). The Family home movies show Norma Jeane with the Howells, having fun cartwheeling on the sand; to play in the ocean waves; to go around walking on the sand.

Years later, Ms Howell will tell in a documentary, talking about this period: "She was a lovely girl and we loved to her. (..) It was wonderful to have her at the beach with us. She was just a happy tennager, playing in the water, just doing cartwheels on sand, really enjoyng herself. We bought her first bathing suit, she was soft real."
As for Marilyn, she will tell later in an interview: "I loved playing with children of the neighborhood".
