Rare, nude images from screen legend Marilyn Monroe's final photoshoot have surfaced, 50 years after the pictures were taken.
Photographer Lawrence Schiller captured the iconic beauty posing naked by a swimming pool at Fox film studios on May 23, 1962, during a shoot on the set of her film "Something's Got To Give", reported Sun online.
The stunning snaps see Monroe seductively staring in to the camera as her arms cover her bare chest, and later flashing her butt as she pulls on her dressing gown.
Schiller has never released the full collection of shots, but now he has finally shown them off for his new book Marilyn & Me.
The 75-year-old photographer said, "The photographs shows the real Marilyn Monroe teasing you, yet there is still a little mystery left. I was so unguarded that she became unguarded with me."
However, the film was never finished - the unreliable actress was fired in June, 1962 and she was tragically found dead in her Los Angeles home in August that year.
