As the shoot unfolded, glasses of champagne were poured and albums by the Everly Brothers were spun. (Stern had inadvertently failed to bring any by Sinatra, much to Marilyn’s umbrage.)  Against a white paper backdrop, the actress began posing in and even in a dark wig. Then, once the champagne had taken effect, Marilyn mellowed to posing almost nude. She walked into the bedroom, stripped off her clothes and enacted a sort of fan dance with various diaphanous scarves which exposed nearly all of her body. At one point, she attempted to cover her beast with two chiffon cloth roses.
