Marilyn Monroe: Black Sitting

Clip: Season 19 | 1m 16s

How Milton Greene photographed Marilyn Monroe (voiced by Greene's first wife, Amy Greene). Greene was one of many photographers in and out of Monroe's life. But, they were closer than most. Monroe even lived with his family for a short time. More than anything, Greene shot her in such a prolific way. The 'Black Sitting' is just one of their many sessions.
