My LIFE magazine collection - August 17, 1962

Marilyn Monroe is on the cover under a title "Memories of Marilyn".

Inside "Viceroy's got the taste that's right!" as a pretty blonde surrounded by buff lifeguards lighting her up implies, well, you figure it out.

An ad showing a Volkswagon up on the rack and asking "Why are the wheels crooked?" goes on to describe a split rear axle.

Joe Dimaggio's grief is so real and painful in the picture with his Marine son after Marilyn's funeral.

Remember Marilyn. Many glamour shots masking her pain.

The Antic Magic of Central Park.

A Bouquet of Blossoming Blondes. Shirley Knight, Joan Freeman, Carole Wells, Stella Stevens. I only ever heard of Stella. They're all old ladies now.

Finishing up with "The World Agrees on Gilbey's, please!"
