Life magazine called it "the skinny dip you'll never see."

In what would have been Marilyn Monroe's last film role, the buxom, platinum-haired icon frolicked in and around a swimming pool for the unfinished Something's Got to Give in 1962, a remake of the screwball comedy My Favorite Wife from 1940.

Monroe died before she finished making the movie, but excerpts and snapshots of her now-legendary nude bathing scene have only fueled her posthumous celebrity. Almost 50 years after her death, Duncan Miller Gallery is now exhibiting a dozen rare photos of Monroe from the set of Something's Got to Give.

We have seven of them for you -- #7 is above. Here are six more.

6. Come on in, the water's fine

Marilyn Monroe was supposed to wear a body stocking for the pool scene in Something's Got to Give, but she took it off and swam around only in a flesh-colored bikini bottom.
