Marilyn Monroe was working her way to becoming a superstar of mythic proportions when Robert Street danced alongside her in her most famous musical number, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). The number has since inspired everyone from Madonna to Kylie Minogue, but at the time, Street had no way of knowing it's status would become epochal. Along with the other male dancers in the number, Street was costumed as a stereotypical millionaire, clothed in a tuxedo, graying at the temples, with handfuls of diamonds to tempt the gold digger, Lorelei Lee, played by Monroe. His fellow dancer in the number, George Chakiris, recalled that Monroe was a hard worker who was focused on the number and was in constant discussion between takes with famed choreographer Jack Cole. There wasn't a lot of small talk between the star and the dancers. Nevertheless, Street managed to obtain this autographed photo of Monroe to commemorate his performance with the world's most beloved movie star in her most illustrious musical number. The following year, Street appeared as an extra in another smash hit, White Christmas (1954), and in an ironic twist he also had a small part in Valley of the Dolls (1967), a tawdry (and campy) Hollywood tale in which some of the fictional characters' lives were based on Monroe's personal experiences.

été 1952, Beverly Hills Hotel - Dédicace pour un fan

Pendant l'été 1952, un jeune ado de 11 ans passe ses vacances en famille au Beverly Hills Hotel. Attablés à prendre un brunch en famille, ils remarquent l'arrivée de Joe DiMaggio accompagnée d'une jolie blonde. Le jeune ado va demander un autographe à DiMaggio, qui signe sur un ticket de concert, puis demande :"Veux-tu celui de Miss Monroe ?" et l'ado de répondre oui. Marilyn n'avait pas encore accédé à la popularité et n'était qu'une actrice de films secondaires. Elle vivait à cette époque au Beverly Hills Hotel.

The young teenager goes to ask DiMaggio for an autograph, who signs on a concert ticket, then asks: "And would you like Miss Monroe's ?" and the teenager to answer yes.
