Marilyn Monroe Productions began filming Bus Stop in March 1956. Although excited, Milton and Marilyn were also apprehensive heading into the project. Having won their battle with the studio and negotiated new terms, everything was riding on their first film together. Marilyn had one job: focusing on delivering the best performance of her life. Milton concentrated on all the other details, particularly aesthetics and how his collaborator was captured on film.
An exquisite image, Milton photographed Marilyn in the bleachers while they were reviewing the site for rodeo sequences with Bus Stop director Joshua Logan. The original 35mm Kodachrome for this photo was found at the bottom of a file cabinet. This one-shot only candid was not done as part of any film publicity and simply captures Marilyn in the moment.
