The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe

36 candles.

At this point, it's hard for even a superfan to keep track of which "never-before-seen photos" of Marilyn Monroe really have never been seen before. But whatever the case may be, Lawrence Schiller's just-opened "Marilyn & Me" exhibit -- featuring photographs taken during the superstar's final months -- promises to be absolutely mesmerizing. More than 50 of Schiller's shots of Monroe go on display today at the the Steven Kasher Gallery, including a series of poolside nudes from the set of “Something’s Got to Give,” Marilyn's final film, from which she was fired two months before her death. Schiller will be signing copies of his new book, “Marilyn & Me,” at the gallery this evening from 6 to 8 p.m. View more of the photos HERE. Order the book HERE.
