Marilyn Monroe publicity shots from 1947 (they lied about her age)

(Original Caption) As contented a pair of babies as one would hope to see. And why not with cute 18-year-old Marilyn Monroe, as their baby sitter!’ Marilyn was saving the money she earned as a baby sitter to take a dramatic course. One evening on a routine call, she found herself caring for the child of a 20th Century Fox Casting Director. One look at the Los Angeles beauty resulted in Marilyn’s landing a seven-year-contract with that studio. She is shown with fellow studio worker Roy Metzler’s twin boys, Eric and Dick, while the Metzler’s have stepped out. She is currently working in Scudda Hoo, Scudda Hay.
