Somebody, Hold My Earrings!




Marilyn Monroe as Peggy Martin whoopin' some mess outta Marjorie Hoshelle as Bubbles LaRue in the 1948 Columbia offering "Ladies Of The Chorus".  It was her only picture for the studio and the option on her contract was dropped after 6 months.  Withing a couple of years Columbia Prexy Harry Cohn was kicking himself.  Forever after Monroe would be, for him, the one that got away.  And that's how we got Kim Novak.....
