MARILYN MONROE 85TH BIRTHDAY PHOTO EXHIBIT OPENING NIGHT PARTY WITH RARE AND NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN PICTURES BY FAMED HOLLYWOOD PHOTOGRAPHER MURRAY GARRETT

103 WAVERLY PLACE
Murray Garrett was one of Hollywood's most sought-after photographers from the early 1950's to the late 1970's, the "go-to" photographer for stars, movie studios and personal publicists. Garrett exclusively covered Frank Sinatra's private, surprise 21st birthday party at Romanoff's for Natalie Wood, was the only photographer invited to cover Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's Disneyland outing (where they had the use of Walt Disney's personal apartment) and was the photographer of record at Bob Hope's daughter's wedding.
Garrett first photographed Monroe at a charity celebrity baseball fundraiser, when the budding Hollywood starlet threw out the first ball at a game between teams captained by Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope. Their photographic relationship continued throughout Monroe's career, from gala movie premieres to quiet, off-screen moments.
