Unseen images of Marilyn Monroe, 80 years after her final movie

Photography by Milton H. Greene

In the summer of 1960 the movie icon made what would be her last film, The Misfits. Shot in Nevada with Clark Gable (Gone With the Wind) and Montgomery Clift (From Here to Eternity), it was directed by the great John Huston (The African Queen, The Asphalt Jungle, Key Largo, Chinatown), and written by Monroe's husband Arthur Miller, who she would divorce a few months after the movie was shot. Gable died from a heart attack two weeks after filming wrapped. Here, Rob Chilton takes a look at stunning and candid images captured by celebrated photographer and Monroe's confidant, Milton H. Greene, which have been compiled in a hardback book, The Essential Marilyn Monroe.
