Monroe stepped into Jasgur's studio in 1946 with no money, but the ambition to become a model. Jasgur shot numerous photographs of her over the following weeks, including glamour shots that she used in her 20th Century Fox interview.
Jasgur sold the rights to his entire portfolio — including the Monroe photographs — to a contractor, and spent the last years of his life trying to regain control of it.
