Eve Arnold’s famous photo of Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses. Supposedly, she’s reading Molly Bloom’s sexy monologue at the end of Joyce’s novel. This pic is good too–

Speaking of Joyce, “The Boarding House” has been illustrated and animated, and can be viewed here:
I’m currently reading James Joyce’s “Ulysses”. It’s good!
Another pic for my MM collection. Out of all the photos I have of her maybe 3% show MM as a regular person caught doing some thing ordinary. Marilyn probably did read Joyce and had interesting insights about what she found. A good shot of MM as an act is in Robert Altman’s James Dean documentary where she is exiting a car at a premier of a movie featuring J.D., and there is a moment where she is caught as a woman getting out of the car, and instantly becoming Marilyn.
Thank you Frank Delaney.
