Fame and fortune times two, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio tied the knot and lasted nine months before the doomed union ended in divorce. Both were, of course, walking photo opportunities, as evidenced by this vintage wire photo. The 9-1/8 x 7” black-and-white photo showcases a dual image: on the left, Monroe and DiMaggio are all smiles on their January 14, 1954 wedding day; at right, Monroe is pictured in a Hollywood publicity pose. Published in 1972, the crease-free photo features a “United Press International” stamping on the reverse and the original caption sheet accompanies.
