Remembering Marilyn Monroe

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Lawrence Schiller talks about his memoir Marilyn & Me: A Photographer's Memories, about his friendship with the star, which developed when he photographed her in 1960 and 1962 on the sets of “Let's Make Love” and the unfinished feature “Something's Got to Give,” the last film she worked on. The book includes 18 of Schiller’s own photographs, some never previously published.
