So the Story Goes

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

The article below got me to thinking.  About 40 - 50 yrs ago, there was a 'story' was going around about this scene:


The 'story' was that MM's publicity agent arranged for the wind to blow her skirt up without her knowing about it.

The only problem was that MM, apparently, was known to Go Commando quite often.  This being one of those times.

So they had to shoot it over again with underware.

This 'story' is somewhat confirmed by this quote in the article below:

 Monroe would later say . . .  the resulting iconic publicity shot "exposing my legs and thighs, even my crotch"

Re: 'scene ended her marriage to Joe DiMaggio'...

On one hand, poor Joe (sort of), but geez, if you know you're a jealous man and you marry Marilyn Monroe, what do you expect?

Sort of related story - Back whenever it was that Simon and Garfunkel's 'Mrs. Robinson' was a hit, supposedly Joe DiMaggio was at a New York restaurant and saw Paul Simon at another table. Joe went over and challenged him, "what do you mean 'where have I gone', I didn't go anywhere?!".
