This book is a treasure for any Marilyn fan but I think would also be of interest to the general public. The photos are the long lost results of a 1953 Look magazine shoot. The Black and white photos were taken while Marilyn was in Canada on location for the "River of No Return."
While some of the photos are posed, most are candid shots of Marilyn giving the reader a glimpse behind the scenes of this iconic star at the height of her career. I found myself taking my time as I paged through the book. There is a quality about Marilyn that is arresting, she makes you look, even more so in the candid shots. For more insight into Marilyn I am looking forward to "Fragments. Poèmes, écrits intimes, lettres" to be released next week (Lost diaries of Marilyn's). And for a look into the making of Marilyn's last film I highly recommend "Misfits Country."

What a great look at a very cool Canadian moment in pop culture history. It is a treasure trove of candid and posed photos of Marilyn Monroe in Banff, posing with RCMP officers, iconic landmarks and unmistakenly Western Canada. For any fan of Marilyn Monroe, this is a great looking book at a great price. Enjoy!

With the exception of ten or so photographs that are exceptional, the rest of them may as well have stayed lost. Most of the pics are groups of photos that were taken at the same time with only a slight change in Monroe's posture or expression. Take a look at this book in person before you spend your money on it.
