[quite a decent copy, a bit of edgewear to the covers; the binding is intact and the spine uncreased, although about 7/16" of the spine surface has peeled off at the base and there's a one-inch closed tear along the bottom rear hinge]. Mass Market PB (B&W photographs) A paperback original, and a wonderful photo-essay by Sam Shaw of the production of Billy Wilder's THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH. As the cover promises, there are "over 100 exclusive photographs," not scene stills but off-camera and candid shots, the great majority of which feature MM herself -- including, of course, one of the most iconic shots in the history of cinema, Marilyn standing above the NYC subway grate. (The shooting of that sequence -- said to have been suggested for the film by Shaw himself -- is documented here in a series of thirteen shots.) Shaw was unquestionably one of the most talented of the many photographers who trained a lens on Marilyn during her meteoric career as the world's #1 sex symbol.
