Marilyn Monroe Original Golden Dreams 1955 Calendar
Marilyn Monroe Original Golden Dreams 1955 Calendar - May 27th, 1949 is a day that will live in infamy. It is the day that a 22 year old blond named Marilyn Monroe walked into Tom Kelley's studio in Los Angeles, and created two of the most famous and iconic nudes in photographic history. Both show a staggeringly voluptuous Monroe completely naked against a sensuous red backdrop. The two photos were known as "Golden Dreams", and "A New Wrinkle". The images appeared in Playboy and on a series of calendars that would sell in the millions and to this day hold the record for the most calendars ever sold. They were also used on a plethora of other items from coasters to playing cards to bed sheets. This is an original actual wall-hanging Golden Dreams Calendar from 1955. It shows normal signs of patina caused by age, and some fading. 12"x21.5".
