Hello
I was looking photos where different sources identify them as Marilyn at The African Queen Premier (or after-party, I guess) with Nicholas Ray and Robert Wagner. I think they could be different events. Does anyone know for sure?
In the Robert Wagner photos she is clearly wearing a bracelet (not seen in the Nicholas Ray photo).
The glassware on the tables look different and the table in the Nicholas Ray phone looks round and the other table looks square or rectangular (which is not to say the venue didn't have different shaped tables, and different glassware pending what they were drinking).
I also attach a couple of other photos that I haven't catalogues. One has a notation (which I did not make) saying it was for the Red Book Awards Party, and I note in this photo she appears to be wearing the bracelet seen in the Robert Wagner photo.
The others are of Marilyn seated. In one the glassware is the same as the Robert Wagner photo (I'm guessing she removed her gloves to eat).
I searched ESC heaps before posting, so apologies if these photos have already been subject to discussion.

Photoplay magazine carries the photo of MM and Nick Ray and identifies it as the African Queen Premier. I bought it as a loose sheet and it does not have the month. Hedda Hopper identifies the event at Sunday, November 25, 1951. Her hair seems a bit different in the Robert Wagner photo.

Morning!

Thanks Stacey for helping to confirm The African Queen pictures. I think you are right about the hair too!


This morning I was looking through my files again, and found this picture which reports Marilyn is at Musso & Franks with Bob Having... I googled Bob Having but it yielded no relevant results.
