February 5, 1919 — Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith join forces to create United Artists.
Carl Perutz photographed Marilyn in 1958. The photographs were lost until 1980, when they were discovered by an acting troupe in an abandoned New York warehouse. They were published in January 1980’s issue of Playboy’s Roving Eye without the knowledge of the photographer. Artist Jon Whitcomb wrote in explaining the origin of the photographs:
Dear Playboy, Mystery Division: For The American Weekly issue of April 6, 1958, Hearst needed an Easter hat feature and asked me to paint six ladies for it. As usual, overnight. A photographer named Carl Perutz or some such Nom de Nikon handled Marilyn. He was never heard from again. If he was demolished on East 18th Street amidst actors, I’m sorry to hear it.
