One thing about this town, it’s always full of interesting strangers.

Marilyn’s first screen test was shot in 1946 on the set of Betty Grable’s film, Mother Wore Tights. The test was arranged by Ben Lyon, directed by Walter Lang and shot by Leon Shamroy. Allan “Whitey” Snyder did her make up (and would do so during her entire career). The silent test, shot in color, called Marilyn to walk across the set, sit down, light a cigarette, put it out and exit. The test resulted in Marilyn’s first movie studio contract.

Marilyn Monroe ABC >> K >> Korea

Marilyn Monroe traveled to Korea to perform for the american soldiers in 1954 during the war. Marilyn considered this to be one of the happiest moments in her life. Marilyn performed Do It Again and Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friends for the soldiers. Marilyn visited Korea in February but despite the cold weather Marilyn wanted to please the men so she wore a small dress for them. This experience made Marilyn feel and realize she could have a major impact on people. On Korea Marilyn said, "I never thought I had an effect on people until I was in Korea."
