Marilyn Monroe - Schenck House - Statue - Umbrella
In 1930 Joseph Schenck established 20th Century Productions with Darryl F. Zanuck. 20th Century merged with Fox Film Corporation in 1935, with Schenck chairman of the new 20th Century-Fox. The Schencks (Joseph and Nicholas); along with William Fox, Adolph Zukor & Samuel Goldwyn, were vital to the creation of the film industry & known as the five moguls. Marilyn Monroe became friends with Joseph Schenck in 1947 and was known as one of his girl friends, Marilyn insisted the relationship was platonic. He was helpful in her career, getting her a small part in Fox's “Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hay!” (1948) and convincing producer Harry Cohn to give her a contract at Columbia after Fox let her contract lapse in 1949.

For 2 years the selection from the ‘Diamond Edition’ collection stayed in the hands of Chopard and traveled as a series called ‘Forever Marilyn’ to NY, Zurich, UK and graced the walls at Art Basel in Miami.
The Diamond Edition is currently being released and published onto The Archives Store by The Archives, LLC for purchase to the public as a collection of 22 of the 25.

Five decades after the death of Marilyn Monroe the 65th Cannes Film festival, hosted and sponsored by Chopard Jewelers, unveiled an intimate viewing at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes, France in the exclusive Chopard lounge, an exceptional series of 25 never before seen photographs of the star Marilyn Monroe by Milton H. Greene, along with a stunning tribute jewelry creation designed by Caroline Scheufele.
These unseen photographs were a revelation and source of inspiration for Chopard artistic director and Co-president Caroline Scheufele who designed a one of a kind, 200 plus carat heart shaped diamond necklace and earrings inspired by the song ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ that Marilyn sang in ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ and were worn by model and actress Eva Herzigova on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet that evening as a tribute to Marilyn Monroe.
Admirers and fans of Milton and Marilyn had this exceptional window of opportunity to view the collection of 25 images originally named “The Diamond Edition’ which are representative of Milton and Marilyn’s legendary friendship, as Marilyn herself said about Milton, ‘ You made me interesting.’ The images were hand selected by Joshua Greene and edited by Chopard from 40 select images for the occasion.
