Signed vintage glossy photograph of Marilyn Monroe with her stand-in body double, Dorothy Skelton, on the set of River of No Return - the image shows the pair playfully posing together next to a spotlight, wearing identical costumes of jeans and floral-print blouses, with the scenery of their Jasper, Alberta, filming location in the background, with overall creases smoothed such that they are hardly noticeable from distance - in fine condition. Attractively mounted for fine display with another (unsigned) photograph, shows Marilyn Monroe in a beautiful bust portrait - framed to an overall size of 23,5 x 16,5 inch. Provenance: Consigned by Dorothy Skelton herself. Monroe injured her ankle during filming in Canada and was ultimately put in a cast, presumably making her body double an even more important asset to the filmmakers.
