Interesting questions about Marilyn

First Question:

I recently started taking a liking for Marilyn Monroe photos. I bought a cheap print the other day. I am desperate to know if this photo has a title. I will describe it to the best of my ability. She is on the right hand side of the photo, wearing something orange (looks like fleece). You can see a tear in her eye as she looks onto the city. It is night time and there are neon signs all over (chevrolet, capitol city theater, budweiser). Does that sound familiar at all?

Second question:

I am always getting forwards (emails) from friends with cool facts and such. One e-mail stated that Marilyn Monroe was a size 14. Is this true? If yes, would not a size 14 from the 50s be different from a size 14 now? I searched for this fact on the web but had no luck. I am also wondering what a size 14 in the 50s would be equivalent to today.

    Thanks for the questions. I will try to answer them as best I can. And please, if you have further thoughts or inquiries do not hesitate to ask a follow up question.

    First off, I am also a great collector of her photos, and I do know the one u describe. It does not have a title but it was taken by Marilyns close friend Milton H Greene. The photo is actually somewhat of a rare item, where did u purchase it from?

    I am clueless about dress sizes. I am sorry, I really do not know. If this helps I can tell u that she was 56 and she weighed 115 pounds. I do agree though that a size 14 in the 50s would be different then one today. I would presume that the size 14 in the 50s is smaller than that of todays but again I am ignorant on this particular subject so I could very well be wrong. I hope I was somewhat of a help to you. Thanks again for writing and have pleasant photo collecting days ahead of you!
