Although Douglas Kirkland has photographed numerous celebrities. everyone wants to know first about Marilyn Monroe. Douglas shares what Marilyn was really like. At the time, he was a young frightened photographer working with Marilyn for LOOK Magazine. Marilyn liked still photography better than motion pictures because she could live it in that there was no script so Marilyn could be more creative. Their evening was sexually and creatively charged.

Douglas Kirkland also tells Danika about his first big break photographing Elizabeth Taylor, followed by his month touring with Judy Garland. Also, Coco Channel probably affected his life more than anyone else in Paris with Mademoiselle Magazine.
