Marilyn Monroe and Paula Strasberg, 1960 by Ernst Haas, is an 11" x 14" gelatin silver print. The print has Haas's copyright stamp on verso (back of photo), with annotations and estate authentication stamp. Printer: Robin Bell with stamp also verso.

During the filming of The Misfits, an American drama film written by playwright Arthur Miller, photographer Ernst Haas turned his camera on Marilyn Monroe to capture the star of the production without artifice, for a reportage on the set, shot in natural lighting, that ultimately reveals Marilyn Monroe as both a beautiful woman and complex personality. Through Haas's camera lens we are drawn in by the star and experience a very real and endearing Marilyn Monroe. A woman and actress capable of myriad emotions Monroe's personality becomes apparent, beneath the character she plays and beyond the posturing and expressions the actress mimes for the film.

In 2021 the photography world celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Ernst Haas while film buffs saluted the 60th anniversary of the release of the film The Misfits. Haas was assigned to shooting behind the scenes on the set of The Misfits (1961), a groundbreaking production that starred Marilyn Monroe gifted actor and legendary sex symbol from the 1950s-early 1960s.

Genius American playwright Arthur Miller wrote the original screenplay for The Misfits as a Valentine’s Day gift for his wife Marilyn. Directed by the great John Huston, Monroe won a “World Film Favorite” Golden Globe for her performance.

June 1, 2021 marked the 95th birthday anniversary of actress Marilyn Monroe.
