Marilyn Monroe Quotes

In 1944 while working in a factory she met photographer David Conover who was sent there by US Army Air Forces’ First Motion Picture Unit. He was there to shoot some morale-boosting pictures of female workers at the factory. Although none of her pictures was used and shown, she still quit the factory and started pinup modelling for Conover and his friends. Conover was the one who suggested to audition for Book Model agency which she was signed up for in August 1945. Since her figure was apt for pin-up modelling she was often signed up for advertisements and Men’s Magazines. She was one of the most hardworking and most successful models of the company and because of that, the company arranged for her to sign an acting contract in 1946. By 1953 she had become the sex symbol in Hollywood as well as the most bankable Hollywood celebrity as well.
