STILL A GREAT BEAUTY

A Photo Portfolio
By Bert Stern
Marilyn progressed from model to starlet to featured player to star and, finally to superstar – the most famous of filmdom’s fabled sex symbols. But even the harshest of her critics have come to realize that she was far more than a sex symbol; they now acclaim her as an actress who had the potential for greatness.
Always insecure about her beauty. (sic) She spent hours putting on her movie makeup and was always checking in the mirror to see that she still looked well. And as she grew older, her insecurities increased. Nobody could convince her that she had nothing to worry about for quite some time.
Marilyn’s talent was as great as her beauty, some of her director’s claim that along with Brando, she was the most outstanding film star of her time. Undeniably, the mixture of pathos and humor she exuded on screen was totally engulfing.
Since Marilyn’s death, many actresses have tried and failed to claim her position as Hollywood’s reigning goddess. But while fledgling starlets have come and gone, Marilyn’s legendary beauty, the laughing incandescent loveliness of her film image lives on unsurpassed.

AUTUMN IN NEW YORK
BUD POWELL - BARNEY WILEN
On his first day in New York, the traveler found himself on Fifth Avenue at Fifty-Seventh Street. He took out his little note-book and wrote feverishly. “I see women here – the most beautiful I have ever seen. How different they are from their sisters in my country! They are beautiful and tall – very tall."
Carefully he underlined “very tall.” Because he now felt short – he who had always been regarded, across the ocean, as a fairly tall man. Here he had to lift his head to look into the women’s faces. It was quite vexing … “They stride like giantesses, looking only forward. They walk alone, perfectly at ease, feeling no need for the company of dog or man …” The traveler knew that at this time of day the men were far away, in a jail called Wall Street. “…Here my sex is represented only by policemen, who stop traffic every so often to permit the giantesses to cross the street in safety.”
Filled with admiration, he scribbled on. “They have their own style, with shoes open in front and back, with long hair falling to their shoulders.” He compared them to Joan of Arc, 1937 model, then modified: “Their tawny manes wave in the breeze.” Women lionesses – perhaps? And he also compared them to the splendid fruits of California – Giantesses – Triumph of Strenuous Sport and Rational Diet.
