The Franklin Mint did a tribute to Marilyn Monroe's entertaining of the troops in Korea by releasing a replica of the sparkling purple dress that she wore when performing. The first photo here is from February 9, 1954, and shows a huge crowd of love struck men taking aim at Marilyn with their cameras. I wonder where all those photos are now?
On how I wish the Mint would release their dolls with articulation; this particular outfit and doll just yearn to be posed creatively!
