This image of Marlon Brando and Marilyn Monroe was taken by Milton H. Greene in November, 1955. In order to raise money for the Actors Studio, a benefit gala for the play The Rose Tattoo was planned. Tickets were slow to sell, so the two stars were called upon to be photographed for PR and improve ticket sales. Marlon Brando was a 2-time Best Actor Oscars winner in 1965 for On The Waterfront and 1973 for The Godfather. He was nominated for Best Actor 7 times and Best Supporting Actor once in 1990.
