Marilyn Monroe

These early, never-before-seen pictures of Marilyn Monroe really struck me.  As a 24-year-old, she seems a bit more innocent, a bit less polished and a bit more real without her doe eye affectation.  LIFE photographer Ed Clark took these photos in August 1950, but they were only recently uncovered as LIFE began to digitize its archives.

Another early picture when Marilyn was still Norma Jeane (center).
