Movie icon Marilyn Monroe's 83rd birthday has been marked by the release of unseen photos of the actress taken almost 60 years ago.
The Some Like It Hot star would have turned 83 on Monday (01Jun09).
The shots, posted on website Life.com, were taken by Life magazine's longtime photographer Ed Clark in 1950, three months after Monroe's first on-screen role in The Asphalt Jungle.
Clark died in 2000.
