Before Marilyn

The Blue Book Modelling Years

Astrid Franse, Michelle Morgan

Miss Emmeline Snively, head of the Blue Book Agency, nurtured 19-year-old Norma Jeane Dougherty at the beginning of the young woman’s modelling career, before she transformed into the movie icon Marilyn Monroe. It was Miss Snively’s archive, which includes previously unseen colour and black-and-white photographs, adverts, notes and press clippings from the agency, which enabled the authors to put together this unique and detailed account of Marilyn’s first tentative steps along the road to fame.
