    1. The Taschen Special Edition of the shooting draft is outstanding. It not only includes studio stills and behind-the-scenes photos, but also features Marilyn Monroe's notes (which may have been useful for the days that she had to tape her sides to props to remember her lines).

    2. I love this movie so when I stumbled upon this book I freaked! This is what I enjoy seeing in a movie book. Now if only I could find more books exactly like this one I would be a happy man!
