Unpublished Photos of Marilyn Monroe in Banff, Canada

Never before seen images of injured Marilyn Monroe
In 1953 Marilyn Monroe was in Banff Alberta Canada shooting "River of No Return".
She hurt her ankle and spent some time staying at the Farmont Banff Springs Hotel and touring the town.
Photographer John Vachon took over 200 pictures of Monroe but only 2 have ever been published before. One of the shots of her boyfriend, baseball player Joe DiMaggio is the only time the pair posed for a formal portrait.
