Marilyn Monroe Files at Blue Book Model Agency Recovered in the Netherlands 50 Years After her Death

May 15, 2012

THE HAGUE, the Netherlands, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

The files of the Blue Book Agency, Marilyn’s first model agency in Los Angeles,
recovered in The Hague, the Netherlands.

Miss Emmeline Snively, founder of the agency in 1939, discovered Marilyn Monroe (then
Norma Jean Dougherty) in 1945 as a model. The files go all the way back from 1945 until
1969, the year that, as Miss Snively mentioned in a interview, “She put it away forever”.

The contents are many photographs, negatives, letters, telegrams, personal notes,
autographs and even a script… Most of this material has never been published.

Miss Snively introduced Marilyn tol the movie world and always followed her career.
From all the available information it appears that Miss Snively tried for years after
Marilyn’s death to sell this box with the files to writers, editors and film producers
like Mr. Zanuck from 20th Century Fox, without any luck. Who could have known at that time
that Marilyn would still be such a legend even 50 years after her death? These files will
be a unique start to make a great movie, book or documentary.
