Color footage of a young Marilyn Monroe as a model for the Blue Book Model Agency

In the mid 1940s, Marilyn Monroe joined the Blue Book Model Agency, the largest agency in Los Angeles. During this same time she bleached her brunette hair to give herself a golden blonde look, as Miss Emmeline Snively, who ran the agency, needed someone with lighter hair. Monroe became an instant success, appearing in several pinup magazine covers. Her success attracted several other organizations to seek for her, however Ben Lyon, an executive with 20th Century Fox was able to get her first and arrange a screen test for her. The screen test went very well for Marilyn who was able to impress Ben Lyon. After the test she was given a stand six month contract which saw her earn a weekly salary of 125 dollars.
