Marilyn Monroe and Two Kennedys, Captured in a Snap

Given the scuttlebutt about Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedy brothers (well, two of them, anyway), not to mention the murder and conspiracy theories still circulating about her untimely death, it makes some sense that there’d be few, if any, candid images of the screen siren ... (continued)
