POP action figure of Marilyn Monroe #24
Marilyn Monroe is one of the most famous American actresses in the world. Born in 1926, she marked an entire era by becoming a unique cultural icon. Actress, singer and above all model, these are the talents exercised by the young Marilyn, who had little intention of becoming world-famous.
Indeed, Marilyn Monroe grew up far from her biological family in a context of poverty and mistreatment. She marries very young to escape this condition and uses her beauty to become a model. A first step in the artistic world which will open her a few years later the doors of Hollywood and the world notoriety that we know her. Did you know that in the United States, she has only a few rivals in terms of fame? And the only ones to come close to her are Mickey and Elvis Presley!
Marylin Monroe has shone in many films, the most famous of which are Les hommes préfèrent les blondes, Sept ans de réflexion or Certains l'aiment chaud. It is for this last film that the actress will receive a Golden Globe rewarding her talent. Unfortunately, it will be the last distinction of the actress since she will die two years later in conditions that remain mysterious: overdose, suicide, political attack, ... Many conspiracies still surround the death of Marilyn Monroe contributing to fuel the mystery around the icon.
Marilyn Monroe is also known for appearances that have left no one indifferent. Beginning with the song "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" that she performed in front of 15,000 people at Madison Square Garden to wish a happy birthday to American President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1962 and which wanted to fuel rumors about a love relationship she had with the young president! Note: Marylin Monroe's dress (a very tight silk outfit) was sold at auction for $1.3 million, making it the most expensive dress in the world.
Among the other mythical scenes surrounding Marylin Monroe is the one from the film "Seven Years of Reflection" in which Marylin stands on a subway mouth as the air lifts her white dress. This image, anchored in everyone's mind, is the one Funko chose as a tribute to the actress with Marylin Monroe's POP figure!
So it's quite natural that this figurine presents Marylin in the exact posture of the film. We recognize the young woman with long blond hair with curly locks, her pale face perfectly made up from eyebrows to lips.
Marylin Monroe's POP depicts her in her most famous outfit: the imposing white evening gown she wears in Seven Years of Reflection. This dress lives up to the actress's charm and charisma: a magnificent décolleté, bare shoulders and a whiteness that suits her so well... Marylin holds the dress with both hands to prevent it from rising, blown by the air from the subway mouth. In spite of her efforts, the dress still rises a little and lets the actress's knees show through.
As for the accessories, no need to overdo it! Only the high heels and earrings dress by Marylin Monroe! Both are also white and perfectly conclude the costume worn by the actress to play this scene.
Of course, Funko did not omit the most important detail on Marylin Monroe's figure: the famous mole that makes the angelic face of the young woman shine! She sketches a smile that lets her white teeth and pulpy lips show through. Could this be the most beautiful Marilyn Monroe figurine? Perfect to pay homage to the icon!
