Marilyn Monroe: All alone in a white halter dress

Clip: Season 19 | 2m 1s

George Zimbel's photographs: Joe Dimaggio walking out on Marilyn Monroe. Zimbel was there on the street among several photographers to document what would become Monroe's most lasting image: a blowing white halter dress. More than the dress or the scene, Zimbel remembers a Joe Dimaggio that couldn't take all the bright lights that night. Voices: Family of Sam Shaw, Norman Mailer, Zimbel
