Marilyn Monroe in a foreign re-release poster for Monkey Business (1952).  This was the first of two films she made with Howard Hawks, but the poster image of Marilyn is from The Seven Year Itch (1955), used to capitalize on her increased popularity.  She was only the second female lead, but leads Cary and Ginger are nowhere to be seen in the poster.
