Marilyn Monroe: All Alone In A White Halter Dress

George Zimbel was there on the street among several photographers to document what would become Marilyn 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: leaving Monroe all alone in a white halter dress.

Voices: Family of photographer Sam Shaw, Norman Mailer, George Zimbel.

Marilyn Monroe: Still Life airs Sunday, August 5, 2012 on PBS (check local listings).
