Young starlet Marilyn Monroe plays at the beach with her dog, Ruffles, on Jan. 1, 1947. The former Norma Jean Baker modeled and starred in 28 movies grossing $200 million. Sensual and seductive, but with an air of innocence, Monroe became one of the world's most adored sex symbols. She died 50 years ago, at age 36. (Associated Press)
