Dear CNN: if this photo is ‘previously unseen,’ how come I’ve seen it before?
Tuesday, which would have been Monroe’s 84th birthday, marked the public debut of a rare image of Monroe with Kennedy and his brother Robert F. Kennedy together after the May 19, 1962, party.
“There is no other known photo of Bobby [Kennedy] with Marilyn or JFK with Marilyn, and it’s not because they were never photographed together,” said filmmaker Keya Morgan, who now owns the only original prints of it. “In fact, they were photographed together many times, but the Secret Service and the FBI confiscated every single photograph.”
I clicked through expecting to see something new. I didn’t. I know I’ve seen this photograph before: the individuals, their postures…
Seriously — if you’ve seen it too, at least tell me so I won’t think I’m going crazy(er).
