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.

SHE MAKES THE MOUNTAINS WHISTLE
When M-M-M-Marilyn showed up at glorious Banff for some movie-making, old timers noticed a new note in the air ... could it be that our girl makes even the ancient mountains give with a wolf whistle? ...
Marilyn Monroe has never exactly claimed to be the outdoor type. That's why she was a trifle skeptical when her director ordered her up to the Canadian Rockies for the shooting of 20th Century Fox's "River of No Return". What does a city girl do admidst all that wild, primitive beauty ? Well - first thing this city gal did was tear a ligament in her lovely ankle while gamely trying to wade across a madly rushing river. Marilyn was shipped back to the luxurious hotel at Banff, looking more fetching than ever. There she proved to be tough competition for the famous Banff scenery, with tourists training their cameras at Marilyn instead of the mountains. Luckiest tourists there were the ones with movie cameras -'cause till you've seen the famous Monroe wiggle enhanced by having to be performed on one foot, you ain't seen nothin'. Gave good-natured Marilyn some hearty laughs - and photographers some shots they'll treasure.

THIS IS THE LAST PICTURE
Here it is - the last picture taken of Marilyn Monroe ... she posed for it on a beach near her Hollywood home only a few days before she died.
The sun was going down. It was becomming chilly, Marilyn pulled on a thick knitted sweater, draped a blanket over her knees, and posed for a final picture.
She pursued her lips and blew a kiss at the cameraman.
"OK, George", said Marilyn, "and it's just for you".
George ? He is american writer and photograpgher George Barris. He flew to London yesterday with this picture and the intimate story of Marilyn's last days.
She had asked Barris to write her biography and to illustrate it. She had posed for him; she had talked to him for ten weeks about her past and the future...
She talked more freely and frankly than she had ever talked to anyone before.
Last night, After five hours in London, George Barris flew back to Hollywood for Marilyn's funeral today.
A coroner's inquiry is trying to discover whether or not she died by accident after taking sleeping pills. And yesterday police who are piecing together clues to Marilyn's final hours made an important dicovery.
They now know that the last phone call Marilyn received on the night of her death come from 20-year-old Joe Dimaggio, Joe son by a previous marriage of her second husband.
Barris says: "I am sure Marilyn did not take her life deliberately. She would not have worked so hard with me on the story of her life had she intended to take it.
"She still had a lot to live for, and I know she fekt that, too."
