Rare Photographs of a Pregnant Marilyn Monroe During the Filming of ‘Some Like It Hot’ in 1958

Marilyn Monroe found out that she was pregnant in late September 1958, whilst filming Some Like It Hot. Arthur Miller announced Billy Wilder that Marilyn was pregnant and asked him to be careful with her and finish her workday at 4.30 PM. Wilder didn’t take it very well.

LOOK magazine assigned Phil Stern to capture what Hollywood tycoon, Sam Goldwyn saw from his window on the Goldwyn Studios lot. Using telephoto lenses from his bird’s eye view up in Goldwyn’s office resulted in interestingly lit and unique shots of an unposed Marilyn. Marilyn had no knowledge of Phil’s presence, and he was able to catch a moment no other photographer ever had; Marilyn Monroe visibly pregnant.

Marilyn wanted to protect her baby but at the same time, she worked long hours and insomnia took its toll, she was very afraid of a miscarriage. Sadly on December 16, she miscarried again. Marilyn was never able to carry her pregnancies to term.
