Marilyn Monroe: NYC, 1955: Photographs by Peter Mangone by Jason Danziger


In 1955, Peter Mangone used to be 14 years outdated–a skinny boy from the Bronx with a Marilyn Monroe fixation, like so many youngsters of his era. What wonderful Mangone was once that he bought to meet his idol. For several months, he had performed truant from school to stake out the Gladstone Hotel on Long island's East 52nd Side road, where the 29-yr-old Monroe was once staying after her unhappy divorce from Joe DiMaggio and her dismissal from the Twentieth-Century Fox studios. One morning, Mangone borrowed an eight-millimeter Kodak digital camera from his brother, headed down to the Gladstone and met Monroe as she was once on her approach out purchasing together with her buddy Milton Greene. Mangone's dream got here authentic: she waved, winked and invited him along. Over the path of the afternoon, he filmed her intermittently, with out sound, later developing the movie and viewing it at house. When Mangone left house, the photos went missing, and used to be thought to be lost–except 2002, when his brother found it amongst their father's possessions, virtually in mint situation. “It was once like refinding my highschool sweetheart,” he mentioned. “She was once just the way I remembered her.” This e book of stills from Mangone's five-minute film shows the great monitor siren in excellent moments of unguardedness, towards the Chevys and Checker cabs of Fifties midtown Ny. The nice charm of Mangone's pictures lies on the reverse finish of acquainted graphics by Cecil Beaton, Elliott Erwitt and co.: in his 14-year-outdated fingers, throughout the grainy Kodak movie, with its erratic lighting, Marilyn remains each inch the icon.
