"So you see, it was when I really had no work and no money. Out of desperation I called Tom Kelley and asked him, was he still willing to pay me fifty dollars for that calendar shoot posing in the nude? I said ‘I need that fifty dollars. You must promise never to tell anyone about my posing for you in the nude. I want you to promise me that you will take the pictures so that I wouldn’t be recognisable in them’. I was desperate. I was nearly broke. What else could I do?" - Marilyn Monroe on posing nude for Tom Kelley in 1949.
