50 Years Later: Marilyn Monroe Covers The December Issue @Playboy (pictures x videos Inside)

| November 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Editors at Playboy magazine are marking 50 years since Marilyn Monroe’s death by publishing a series of long-lost photographs of the Hollywood icon. The actress was the publication’s first ever cover star in 1952 and she will make her return to the front page from beyond the grave in the December issue.

Playboy staff spent six months trawling through an archive of more than 10 million photos to select the images of Monroe which feature in the tribute gallery, according to the New York Daily News. The pictures chart the actress’ career and include one of her most famous photos, when she posed naked on a red velvet cloth for photographer Tom Kelly.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner says, “She was most in control when she was in the nude. What would be a position of vulnerability for others was a position of power for her.”

Marilyn died aged 36 in 1962 in a suspected suicide. Listen to audio of her last interview before she committed suicide.
