‘It’s really all about the collection and the way its composed,’ said Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy’s editorial director.

 

‘This is the first time we’ve shown the totality of our collection, from the beginning to almost days before the end of her life. it showcases the arc of her life.’

 

Fifty years after her death, the world is still entranced by Miss Monroe. Playboy’s special package includes the features The Nude Marilyn, a carefully selected portfolio of photographs.

 

The package also features editorials by Roger Ebert and Kim Morgan, recollections from Playboy Publisher Hugh Hefner and an excerpt by novelist John Updike.

 

Playboy had a long relationship with Ms Monroe. The very first issue of Playboy featured Ms Monroe as the cover girl.

 

That famous photograph by Tom Kelley, with Monroe on red velvet cloth, was purchased by Hefner, and says Ebert, it would not be going too far to say it was the making of Hef’s new magazine.

 

‘It legitimized nudity by embodying it in arguably the most famous woman in America,’ Mr Ebert writes………….
