The indelible image of Marilyn Monroe smiling as her skirt blows from a blast from the subway vent was shot during the filming of The Seven Year Itch. Though it is now etched as an iconic photograph, at the time it infuriated her then husband, Joe DiMaggio, and the couple divorced shortly after.
Ballerina and model Enrica "Ricki" Soma, 1946, photographed by Philippe Halsman. The year after this shot was taken, at only 18 years old, Soma graced the cover of LIFE Magazine. She was John Huston's fourth wife not long thereafter and the mother of actress Anjelica Huston. Soma died in a car accident in 1969.
