Marilyn’s “Misfits” Nude Scene: Found?

Yesterday it was reported that a brief, never-used nude scene from The Misfits was discovered many years ago by Curtice Taylor, the son of producer Frank Taylor, and that it might slip out somehow. This morning an odd piece in Vanity Fair by Yohana Desta, titled “Monroe Nude Scene Has Been Found — What Happens Now?,” suggested maybe it shouldn’t. Desta says that because Monroe was sexually exploited throughout her career, it might be a good idea not to let anyone see the scene. Why re-boot that old cruel karma of ogling a naked but very sad movie star who died of an overdose at age 36? Monroe’s costar was Clark Gable.
