The striking and glamorous image of Marilyn Monroe in a purple, shoulderless cocktail dress is from photos done for the release of The Asphalt Jungle in 1950, a film noir classic for which John Huston was nominated for an Oscar and in which Marilyn plays to perfection her role as the mistress of a crooked attorney. "People always talk about the collectability of Marilyn Merlot," says Donna Holder, an owner of Marilyn Wines, "but we find quite often that our customers buy three bottles – one to collect, one to enjoy now, and one to give to a wine-loving friend.  And Marilyn herself wouldn’t have just collected these wines, she would have drunk them as she was more the 'sip and celebrate life' kind of person."
