Chris, the 2nd and 3rd photos are from around April 1952; if I remember correctly, it's at an event celebrating MM's LIFE cover.

Thanks Ileana.
I was thinking of the cover of the magazine where your pictures came from. However, I found it and I've got something very special for you.

An often discussed Marilyn photo mystery here on ES has been regarding a well known and often mentioned appearance which Marilyn made at the Camp Pendleton. It has also been known that Marilyn at Pendleton wore the red "Henrietta-dress".
It is also known, by for instance a blurb by Sheila Graham that the visit probably took place on Sunday, April 4th, 1952.
But not a single photo has to our knowledge surfaced.

Well, I have finally found one photo from Camp Pendleton.
Here it is, from the Havana Post of July 19th, 1952.

Attached File 520719_HAVANA_POST__CUBA__252.jpg ( 144.59K )Number of downloads: 155


This is from the same newspaper from which Ileana posted a few pictures above.
Not high quality (I adjusted it a little), but it's Marilyn...

I noticed this picture which was new to me and I also found a caption to it, in Spanish, which read: "En la base naval de el Toro al sur de Hollywood..." etc. This transalates to "At the El Toro naval base south of Hollywood..." I wondered whether the El Toro naval base might be part of Camp Pendleton and did a Google search - and Bingo! Or rather the other way around: the Camp Pendleton was "an outlying field" of the El Toro naval base.

So, enjoy this "brand new" Marilyn picture from April 4, 1952 at Camp Pendleton, probably surrounded by two unidentified Marines.
Isn't this great fun?

Lasse

The pictures with the photographer Richardson were taken for a magazine in December 1952
The magazine was Leatherneck
I am right ?
Thanks

He,he. Thanks Harald. Much appreciated. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/smile1.gif)

And thanks Ileana!

Now, there is more that can be concluded from this Cuban newspaper.
As you may already have noticed, the pictures that Ileana first posted above, were taken when Marilyn, as a publicity stunt, signed her autographs to the LIFE-issue with her picture on the cover and which was issued a week before this signing event. I'll get back to this some more later.

But first, regarding the following picture, and the corresponding ones, which we also have been discussing here, without being able to definitely find a date and a place for.

Attached File 520719_HAVANA_POST__CUBA__130.jpg ( 260.45K )Number of downloads: 118

(The first one is as posted on ebay, the second my adjusted version of the same)
This is a "landscape" orientated version of this "portrait" orientated one:
Attached File ScanImage232.jpg ( 1.02MB )Number of downloads: 170


At the top of the picture from the Cuban newspaper you can read a few letters of the sign above the entrance behind Marilyn and the car.
It says "...OWL" then there are parts of letters which should read "Rexall" and finally you can spot the bottom part of a few more letters, no doubt the beginnning of the word"DRUGSTORE".
I checked by a Google search, and there was this widely spread chain of "The Owl" drugstores across the United States. They were in business from the early 20th century and there are still some (or many?) in operation (maybe some of our American members can add to this). The "Rexall" is the trade mark of another company which at one time bought the "Owl" chain and added their name to it.
There is also a caption to the picture, which translated from Spanish says that Marilyn is standing outside the entrance of the "Owl" drugstore. (Sometimes it has been suggested that this signing of LIFE magzines took place at the Schwab's drugstore. Now we know that this is not the case.)

While various suggestions have previously been put forward as to where and when of these picture of Marilyn with the car, we can now safely say that they were taken probably around April 11-12 (Fri-Sat), 1952 at one Owl Drugstore in Hollywood.

(However there were many "Owl" drugstores in Los Angeles, why we need further research to tell the exact address of this one. There was for instance one at the corner of Wilshire and Western streets, another one at the corner of the Hollywood Boulevard and Cahuenga Boulevard (the building is still there) )

I uploaded it normally, you should be able to save it normally. If not I can send it to you, just send me a PM.

Another one not too rare, but rare version... :
