Marilyn Monroe photographed on July 13th 1962 by George Barris. "I recall the time where she - it was getting dark practically, very little light and she was on the sand there - the beach was practically deserted, I gave her this blanket to cover her - her legs with to keep warm and she was freezing and she says to me "George" she says "George I'm really frozen" and I said "Marilyn I only have one roll of film left in the camera, let me make that one picture of you and let's call it a day and start again tomorrow." and she says "okay" and she puckered up her lips as if she was going to blow me a kiss and she said "George this is just for you" and it was a beautiful picture. Unfortunately it was the last picture I ever took of her." - Photographer George Barris talking about the last ever picture he took of Marilyn, this was also her last professional photograph.

My friend Tim Leimert was willing to let us use his house, located in the North Hollywood Hills, providing I would introduce him to Marilyn. Tim’s home was beautifully furnished with expensive paintings and sculpture. He also had a huge garden and patio. Only a swimming pool was missing—but Marilyn’s house had one—so the high quality of our backgrounds was assured. Tim promised not to hang around while I interviewed and photographed Marilyn. When Marilyn and I got to Tim’s house, I introduced him and his maid, Louise, to Marilyn. Louise became so nervous when Marilyn shook her hand that she fluttered and stuttered, saying, ‘Is that really you? No one will believe me when I say I met and shook hands with Marilyn Monroe. I can hardly believe it myself. Is that really you?’ Marilyn, laughing, replied, “Sometimes I can hardly believe it, too.” —Marilyn: Her Life in Her Own Words published by George Barris.

In her younger days, Marilyn had often driven along the Pacific Coast Highway, enjoying the sunset or the moon’s reflection in the water. She might stop with a boyfriend at a small beachside restaurant, have a late dinner, and dance the night away. She might go down to the beach, kick off her shoes, roll up her slacks, and let the cool water caress her feet as she and her friend walked along the sand in the  moonlight. “It was sometimes better than sex,” she said.  
She had continued to enjoy these nights on the beach, and on such stops  after she’d become a star, she needed to disguise herself in order not to be  mobbed by fans. Even though she was most often dressed in a baggy sweater and  slacks, with a scarf over her hair and huge sunglasses over her eyes despite the  darkness, a fan might come up and ask, “Did anyone ever tell you, you look just like Marilyn Monroe?” 
Marilyn would laugh and reply, “All the time.”
