A new exhibition at London's Getty Images gallery charts Marilyn Monroe's rise from aspiring actress to Hollywood icon. Drawing on a range of largely unseen archive photos, the show – which marks the 50th anniversary of Monroe's death, and runs until 23 May – includes rare video footage and a selection of memorabilia
