Ever since first I saw “The Misfits” as a child, it struck me how rough Marilyn’s wig looked. I recently stumbled upon her hair and makeup tests for this film, in soft make up and her own hair styled in a gentle, airy style, all of it very flattering. Who knows what took place between that test and the time on set with that chalky, hard wig and the kabuki face.
And all of that, under a crazy hard, unforgiving desert sun.

1. Studio test with her own hair / 2. On set with a half wig on top and her own front hairline / 3. Full wig
