Marilyn was sitting on the bed wrapped up in a sheet. I thought I could maybe take a picture. So I asked Marilyn: “Can I take just one frame of you?” - “Of course.”, she said. I left to get my Leica camera. When I turned around, Marilyn had gotten rid of the sheet and she was now laying nude on the bed. I took one picture.
