During his long career in Hollywood, photographer Milton H. Greene managed to capture all of the city's biggest stars.
Greene shot movie stars like Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, as well as musical icons like Frank Sinatra. But of all of his celebrity subjects, his photo shoots with Marilyn Monroe are the most famous. Not only because Monroe remains one of Hollywood's biggest names, but also because she had a unique relationship with Greene.
Monroe met the photographer during a magazine photo shoot in 1953 and the pair became fast friends. They stayed close for years, and Greene even helped the actress escape her restrictive contract with 20th Century Fox. Greene co-founded Marilyn Monroe productions with the actress.
