These are, in my opinion, the ten best pictures of Marilyn Monroe. Or, more probably, these are just my ten personal favorites, and yours will be different. But these pictures, I believe, capture Marilyn's innocence, her joy, her vulnerability, her beauty, her desire, her charisma and her sweetness. When I think of her, I don't imagine a sex goddess, but I remember Elton John singing those tender, incredibly moving lines about the young boy in the 22nd row, who saw a lot more to her than her sexuality, and who was deeply offended by all the media fuss about her being found in the nude after she died.
