The first photo above shows American playwright Arthur Miller fishing with his wife Marilyn Monroe in 1957, the amusing moment caught on film by Sam Shaw in East Hampton beach near the happy couple’s summer home in Long Island, New York.

Miller was Monroe’s third and last husband; they married in 1956 and divorced in 1961. Telegraph has published an excerpt about their relationship from an Arthur Miller biography written by Christopher Bigsby, which you can read here!
