Marilyn Takes Manhattan


  I was daydreaming and accidentally got off the subway at Bryant Park instead of Rockefeller Center this afternoon on my way to work. Call it kismet, but my error was rewarded with this photo display in the station by the late film producer and photographer Sam Shaw, who was hired by Billy Wilder to shoot the film poster of "The Seven Year Itch." The subway grate is definitely a classic. But it's his other "candids" of Marilyn Monroe in the city that still leave me breathless.
