    Marilyn Monroe, taken by Lani Carlson in 1952 at a party thrown by bandleader Ray Anthony, celebrating the release of the song Marilyn, written by Ervin Drake and Jimmy Shirl. Carlson took these photos with a David White Stereo Realist Camera, a dual-lens camera that creates a three-dimensional effect when seen through a special viewer.
      Carlson was hired as a sound engineer for the party, and had ample opportunity to take candid pictures of the actress that day. Wearing a hot pink cocktail dress that she also wore in her breakout film Niagara, Monroe arrived in a helicopter and proceeded to pose for photos with Anthony, Mickey Rooney, the helicopter pilot, Lassie and alone in front of a blown-up piece of sheet music for the song.
