Marilyn Monroe photographed by Lawrence Schiller on the set of Something’s Got To Give, 1962.
Afterwards [JFK’s b-day rally] they had some sort of a reception. I was with my former father-in-law, Isidore Miller, so I think I did something wrong when I met the President. Instead of saying, “How do you do?” I just said, “This is my former father-in-law, Isidore Miller.” He came here an immigrant, and I thought this would be one of the biggest things in his life- he’s about 75 or 80 years old and I thought this would be something that he would be telling his grandchildren about and all that. I should have said, “How do you do, Mr. President,” but I had already done the singing, so, well, you know. I guess nobody noticed it.
