Review

...some of the most spontaneous and flirtatious photographs ever taken of this film legend... --Bloginity





A must have for any Marilyn fan. --Holly Madison



…looking at the pictures, it is truly as though we can see her in motion. --Immortal Marilyn

In memory, Marilyn Monroe―who died 53 years ago, on August 5, 1962―is perpetually bital and beautiful. That's the way photographer Douglas Kirkland saw her when they met in 1961. 'She was like the girl next door,' he recalls. 'She wasn't this superstar. She laughed easily and was very comfortable to be around.' Kirkland's photographs of Monroe have been collected in the book With Marilyn: An Evening/1961. (Todd Leopold CNN.com, August 6, 2015)

Picture the scene – you're alone in a room with Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra crooning on the record player, Dom Pérignon flowing freely. The dazzling pin-up is lying on a bed, striking a range of irresistable poses, dressed in nothing but the finest silk sheets. It sounds like an elaborate 1950s teen fantasy, but it is in fact the real-life scenario in which Canadian photographer Douglas Kirkland – then a baby-faced 27-year-old – found himself on the 17th November, 1961. (Daisy Woodward AnOther Magazine, September 25, 2015)

In this book, Kirkland captured the essence of the woman as a beautiful, spontaneous and flirtatious lady. The images are stunning and a sample of the outstanding photographs that foretold of a world-class photographer's career. It is an extraordinary collection of images. (Noella Ballenger Apogee Photo Magazine)

Not sharp, grainy photos. Saw photographer's Evening with Marilyn photo shoot at the Buffalo museum. Bought the book thinking I would see some of those wonderful photographs. What a disappointment.

Mr. Kirkland, you must be kidding! This book was such a total disappointment in terms of the photos. A good portion of them are out of focus; others are not good shots (as in MMs mouth is open and not in a good way); there is little variation to the content of the photos = all being taken in one bed in one room. No T, No A. The best shot is the picture on the cover. What a disappointment. MM fans don't want artistic interpretations by the photographyer; they want good, clear pictures of their girl. I so looked forward to getting this book, only to be, basically, totally disapponted. And to think I almost bought it through the CNN site for $60!!!. For that amount of money, I would have certainly returned it. I have yet to read the text....maybe that will be more interesting. Unless you are a real diehard fan like myself, save your money and wait until it is on the $1 Table at your local Barnes & Noble. Which is where it should have been.

Sublime, almost mystical quality to Marilyn's great beauty caught by a young photographer who knew what kind of a person he was photographing..a gorgeous legend.
