    Ed Clark—Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images Monroe, beautifully framed by the foliage. She was discovered in 1946, after 20th Century Fox exec Ben Lyon noticed the modeling Marilyn on magazine covers and arranged a screen test for her. "It's Jean Harlow all over again," Lyon is reported to have said.

    Monroe leans over a railing, her short-shorts riding up. Four years later, she'd show off those legs again in the now-legendary subway-grate scene in The Seven Year Itch

    Today, of course, Monroe is remembered as the ultimate sex symbol -- but Ed Clark's camera captures something else here: a not-yet-packaged young woman blissfully unaware of what lies in store.
