Also found were 70 negatives of Jayne Mansfield. In a hilarious understatement, Fury says this is "probably his best garage sale discovery ever." He shared them shortly before what would have been Marilyn's 85th birthday.
I've always had a fascination with Marilyn Monroe, and who she really was. These pictures still show her with glimpses of her childlike innocence and wide open smile, before reality made her eyes guarded and her smile a defensive reflex. She was one of the first of her kind, and she died the death that many celebrities that followed. That one of the most popular and beloved people in the world died alone and feeling isolated is one of the saddest things I've ever heard. I'm glad we have a chance to enjoy her image with new and exciting pictures.
