Size 5 x 7 inch Gelatin silver double weight, triple Stamped with Barris' rare Red stamp and Black France stamp as well as noted photographic preservationist Kim Goodwin's stamp. Rare shot, this is one of a kind. Part of the "last photos" ever to be taken of the young starlet. Taken shortly before Marilyn's passing in June of 1962. Barris went shopping for Marilyn before this shooting and is quoted in his book as saying On my shopping spree for Marilyn, I went to two of her favorite stores, Jax on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, and Saks Fifth Avenue. At Jax I bought her some beautiful slacks and decorative Emilio Pucci sport shirts. When Marilyn & Barris got to Tim's house, Barris introduced him and his maid, Louise, to Marilyn.
Louise became so nervous when Marilyn shook her hand that she fluttered and stuttered, saying, Is that really you? No one will believe me when I say I met and shook hands with Marilyn Monroe. I can hardly believe it myself. " Marilyn, laughing, replied, "Sometimes I can hardly believe it, too.
