Everyone Prefers Blondes – Marilyn Event at Morrison Hotel Gallery

Coming up at The Morrison Hotel Gallery at Sunset Marquis is “Some Like It Hot,” an exhibition of the works of renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, in which never before seen images and footage of Marilyn Monroe are featured.

In 1953, Greene was a photographer who originally started out shooting for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, and then began to shoot celebrities.  His list of subjects reads like a who’s who of the Hollywood elite in the ’50s and ’60s, including such notables as Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and many others.  He was sent on an assignment to shoot Marilyn and the meeting was a pivotal moment in his career and life. The two became very close friends, formed a production company together, and collaborated on some 53 famous photo shoots.

His 1954 image of Marilyn in a tutu was chosen by Time/Life as one of the most iconic images of the 20th century.  From 1953 to 1957, the pair were inseparable, and the “Some Like It Hot” exhibition offers a look at an iconic celebrity through the eyes of a close friend and confidant.  The exhibition runs from July 16th through July 24th at The Morrison Hotel Gallery in The Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood.
