Episode Title: 
Marilyn Monroe: Still Life

Marilyn Monroe was, arguably, the most photographed person ever. This program tells her story through interviews with photographers such as Eve Arnold, Arnold Newman, Elliott Erwitt, George Zimbel and Phil Stern, and especially through the photos themselves, an ageless testament to her grace, guts and sexiness — her humor and vulnerability. She understood their power and she exploited it. She created, and curated, her own image. Though she died 50 years ago, Monroe persists in her image. This encore program is presented commemorate the 50th anniversary of Monroe’s death (8/5/62).
