Marilyn Monroe photographed by Allan Grant during her last interview to Richard Meryman for Life Magazine, July 1962.
“Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe. I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one. I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity. If fame goes by, so long, I’ve had you, fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle. So at least it’s something I experienced, but that’s not where I live.” 
- Marilyn Monroe to Richard Meryman, Life Magazine, August 17th 1962.

In 1958, LIFE Magazine invited Marilyn Monroe and photographer Richard Avedon to recreate images of five celebrated actresses of five different eras. The story entitled “Fabled Enchantresses”, featured Monroe as Lillian Russell - turn-of-the-century American actress and singer, Theda Bara as Cleopatra, Clara Bow - the “IT” girl, Jean Harlow (Her Idol) and Marlene Dietrich as Lola Lola in The Blue Angel. The piece was part of the magazine’s December 22 “Christmas” issue and included an article by Marilyn’s playwright husband, Arthur Miller, entitled “My Wife, Marilyn”.
