Marilyn Does Precode...

Since I decided to limit my blog to only Precode material, I haven’t had the time to research outside that era into my full passion of classic film in general.  Like most girls, I am/ was sort of obsessed with Marilyn Monroe and when I found a collection of pictures done by photographer Richard Avedon where she emulates some of the most popular silent and Precode actresses I had to share it on my blog. Below is the beautiful Marilyn as Theda Bara, Lillian Russell, Clara Bow, Jean Harlow and Marlene Dietrich.
