A weekend treat 😉 A vastly more complex woman than most realize, the commentary along with these photos give you a bit more insight into the woman. Here’s a series of pics shot by photographer Lawrence Schiller during filming of 1962’s ultimately unfinished “Something’s Got to Give.” Monroe would be dead just four months after the pics were shot, and the film abandoned. In some little known trivia, after Monroe was fired from the film they hired Lee Remick to replace her. Dean Martin, the film’s co-star had leading lady approval, and refused to continue without Monroe.
A version of the film ultimately made it to the big screen in 1963 titled “Move Over Darling,” starring the wonderful Doris Day and James Garner.
