Photo du Jour: Marilyn Monroe as Theda Bara (1957)

Today is the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death.

Photo by Richard Avedon. More of his images of Marilyn as various screen legends over at Retronaut. She's unrecognisable!


  1. this is really Marilyn Monroe?
    I would never guess...

  2. Amazing, isn't she? It's a shame she never got to explore this chameleon-like ability of hers further. After decades of various starlets dressing up as Marilyn in photoshoots, it's nice to see that Marilyn did the same thing herself!
