Marilyn Monroe's Unpublished Photos

I'm so excited to see 'My Week With Marilyn'! I have been hearing nothing but great things. Plus that time period is one of my favorites. The Hubs has another football tournement this weekend; sounds like I need to plan a lovely girls date! 

Anyway, how fab are these photos of Marilyn Monroe? She was only 24 years old at the time of this particular shoot. 
The images were randomly discovered by an editor at LIFE Magazine. They had been stored away and forgotten in a New Jersey warehouse, until now.

Photographer, Ed Clark t
alks about his shoot with her:
"She was unknown then, so I was able to spend a lot of time shooting her. We'd go out to Griffith Park [Los Angeles] and she'd read poetry. I sent several rolls to LIFE in New York, but they wired back, 'Who the hell is Marilyn Monroe?'"

Have any of you seen 'My Week With Marilyn' and do you give it two-thumbs-up or down?
