wearing a costume that is half-Puritan, half-chorine, pretty Marilyn Monroe seems to have little desire to hunt turkey after finding this gobbler, still ‘stumping’ long after Election Day. Currently seen in All About Eve, this movie starlet seems just as frightened by the gun as the bird is. photo dated November 10, 1950 – Hollywood
