There is one picture where you see the back of Gable and the front of Marilyn, and there’s a rubber tire somewhere. And she looks very happy and she’s hugging him and that was the moment when he told her he was going to be a father -I knew about it because he told me the day before- and she was so thrilled because there he was 63, expecting his first child, and as you know she’s had some bad luck herself so, she was just delighted with that.

    After I did the session, the bulrushes and the playground, I went to see her to show her the stuff. Now I was somewhat inexperienced, I did not know that unless the arrangement has been made beforehand, you do not go and show the subject what you’ve done… At any rate because I didn’t know and  I would have gone anyhow because I liked her and  I wanted her to be happy with me, I went to see her and we had a rather strange session…
     She was staying at the Waldorf. She was on suspension from Twentieth Century-Fox, still trying to work out her own company. And when I arrived at her door, she had on a diaphanous black negligee, nothing underneath, a hairbrush in her hand  and she said ‘If you can wait until I’m interviewed there’s a lady coming' -I forgot the magazine…somewhere middle European magazine- 'then we’ll look at the pictures afterward.’ I said, ‘fine.’ I came in and sat down.  Pretty soon there was a knock at the door and the lady came in. And the lady sat down on the chair, put her bag on a low table, reached over to get the bag to get her pencil out of her bag out. Marilyn meanwhile said ‘Do you mind if I brush my hair?' 'No,’ said the lady ‘of course not.’ But when she looked up Marilyn was brushing her pubic hair. And that was the kind of joke… that was a little over the top… but there was always something that she would have thought of to intrigue and to amuse…That poor lady was so shocked she took off instantly, she didn’t wait, she asked a few questions and then left.

    When I had looked for a place in which to photograph her I had found both a playground and what looked like a dramatic Chinese landscape with bamboo and grasses and what looked like elephant grasses and I figured it looked like anywhere. And she had put on a leopard skin bathing suit so she really looked an animal crawling through the forest and I thought that would be marvelous. However, when we got there to my chagrin I found that it had rained the night before and the place was muddy, and wet, and sludgy, and black… And she was wonderful, she lay in it, she stood in it, she romped in it… she was just a delight and her hands were just covered in mud, and her knees, and legs, and UGH! And when we got through she was laughing and I was laughing.
