Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Sex Appeal Amid a bit of Mystique

Today's History Lesson...memorable photographs

There are numerous photographs that have earned the tag famous: History and Memory: Iwo Jima, Kissing the War Goodbye, The Smiles of Diana, just to name a few. One of the most famous photographs of all time occurred on this day, September 15, 1954. The picture captured the sex appeal and mystique of Marilyn Monroe during the filming of The Seven Year Itch. "The scene infuriated her husband, Joe DiMaggio, who felt she was quite the exhibitionist, and the couple divorced shortly afterward."

This Day in History: September 15, 1954

Matthew Zimmermann’s above photo was the most iconic image of the event,
but several versions of the scene existed,
including those by Elliot Erwitt and Gary Winogrand.

 In the actual movie, Monroe’s dress didn’t fly up quite as high;
the scene, with Tom Ewell admiring his dream girl’s pleasure
at a blast of air through the subway grate (below),
was originally shot near Grand Central Terminal,
then reshot on a soundstage.

The depiction of Monroe over the grate has been
compared to a similar event in the 1901 short film
What Happened on Twenty-third Street, New York City.

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." ~ Marilyn Monroe
