14/06/1951, Los Angeles, Studios de la Fox - Essais pour "Let's Make It Legal"

Le 14 juin 1951Marilyn Monroe et Robert Wagner jouent une scène en essai pour le film "Chérie, divorçons" dans les studios de la 20th Century Fox. Si les deux acteurs jouent tous les deux dans le film, ils ne partagent aucune scène ensemble dans le montage final.
Robert Wagner racontera dans son livre autobiographique "Pieces of my heart" publié en 2009: "Au début de ma carrière, à la Fox, j'étais impatient d'expirer et je suis devenu connu comme le "gars des essais". C'est-à-dire que je jouerais le rôle principal masculin face à n'importe quelle actrice testée pour un contrat potentiel. J'ai fait des essais avec Marilyn deux fois : une fois, lorsqu'elle a obtenu son premier contrat avec la Fox, et une autre fois en 1951, lorsque nous avons partagé la vedette dans Let's Make it Legal. Marilyn et moi n'avions pas de scènes réelles ensemble dans le film final, mais pendant notre test, elle semblait légèrement nerveuse."
L'une des photographies est publiées dans le magazine Look du 23 octobre 1951, sous le crédit du photographe Earl Theisen.

On June 14, 1951, Marilyn Monroe and Robert Wagner play a test screen scene for the film "Let's Make It Legal" in the 20th Century Fox Studios. While the two actors both star in the film, they do not share any scenes together in the final cut.
Robert Wagner will tell in his autobiographical book "Pieces of my heart" published in 2009:
"Early in my time, at Fox I was eager for expire and became known as the "test boy". That is, I would play the male lead opposite any actress being screen-tested for a potential contract. I tested with Marilyn twice: once, when she first got her contract at Fox, and another time in 1951, when we co-starred in Let's Make it Legal. Marilyn and I had no actual scenes together in the final film, but durong our test, she seemed slightly nervous."
One of the photographs is published in Look magazine in October 23, 1951, with the credit of photographer Earl Theisen.

15/06/1951 - Marilyn élue "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from"

Le 31ème régiment des "Ours Polaires" en Corée ont élu Marilyn Monroe "La fille avec qui nous aimerions le plus faire un câlin d'ours", devancant Corinne Calvet et Mitzi Gaynor.

The 31st "Polar Bear" Regiment in Korea elected Marilyn Monroe "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from", ahead of Corinne Calvet and Mitzi Gaynor.

Miss Monroe Still 31st Girl
SOMEWHERE IN KOREA
(Pac. S&S)—-Beauty judges of the 31st "Polar Bear" Regiment are beginning to doubt their choice of feminine pulchritude.
They selected beautiful Marilyn Monroe as the "girl we should most like to get a bear hug from." She outpointed curvacious Corinne Calvet and Mitzi Gaynor for the title.
The day after the selection, a GI in the regiment received a photograph from a Los Angeles paper covering the return of the USS Manchester from Korean waters. Smack in the middle of the picture was Marilyn Monroe—with three sailors. The trio and Marilyn were engaged in —a bear hug. The bosomy screen star is still number one "Polar Bear," but the boys hope she confines her hugging in the future to the regiment and lets the Navy find their own pin-ups.
