"After I set up the studio (at the Bel-Air) the front desk rang: 'Miss Monroe is here.' I decided to go down and meet her. I met her (for the first time) on the pathway to the suite. She was alone wearing a scarf and green slacks and a sweater. She had no make-up on. I said, 'You're beautiful', and she said, 'What a nice thing to say!' (Bert Stern)"
