Marilyn at Santa Monica Beach 1962!
Thanks go out to Anonymous, who tipped us off that the photos of Marilyn Monroe I asked about earlier were taken by George Barris in July of '62 at Santa Monica Beach. They are in fact some of the last photographs taken of Marilyn before she died (Barris and Monroe were working on a piece for Cosmopolitan but were also said to be discussing a book project together).
Youtube has a great clip of the shoot at Santa Monica up - about the 2:12 mark, we get some tantalizing footage of Marilyn playing with seaweed again.
