Norma Jean, Sailor Girl, 1946

By Bruno Bernard
About the image
A portrait of Marilyn Monroe in a sailor's cap from 1946, when she went by the name Norma Jean Baker. This is from photographer Bernard of Hollywood's first sitting with the 19-year-old, whom he discovered. Bernard gave this photo, along with other girl-next-door images to Ben Lyons, head of the 20th Century Fox talent department. These images got Norma Jean her first studio screen test and motion picture contract. Later Marilyn told Bernard she’d never forget it started with him. 

Collector's Note:
This is an Estate Authorized limited edition released in 2012.
The photographs have been signed on behalf of the estate of Bruno Bernard by his daughter Susan Bernard.
