Now in its fifth year, Fox Presents the Films of Marilyn have released another great calendar for movie fans, with quotes from characters she played (though they do tend to favour her pre-Seven Year Itch era.)

If you’re interested in other stars from Marilyn’s heyday, why not try this new Hollywood Actresses calendar, which includes a free poster…

And finally – if you keep a diary, this spiral-bound planner, illustrated with photos by Milton Greene, may be for you.

Marilyn Calendars and Diaries for 2016

Hugo 2016

As usual, there is a vast array of Marilyn-themed calendars on sale for the coming year. Unfortunately, some publishers have succumbed to the lamentable trend for Photoshopped images and unsourced quotes. Here are some of the better items on offer.

Hugo 2016a

This year’s offering from the French company, Hugo Image Calendars – known for their high quality products – includes twenty images in large format.

Fox 2016

In association with Twentieth Century-Fox, Brown Trout has produced their third ‘Films of Marilyn‘ calendar this year.

A number of Marilyn-themed diaries have also been released, including Day Dream’s spiral-bound planner – ideal for jotting down future engagements.

TeNeues Diary 2016For personal diarists, TeNeues remains the best choice. Marilyn graces the cover of next year’s Magneto diary – complementing their annual Glamour calendar. Heiner Meyer’s Marilyn- themed artwork also features inside, as well as portraits of other vintage stars, including Brigitte Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor.

Calendars and Diaries for 2014

 Here’s a selection of the best Marilyn-related calendars on sale now. First up is a bi-monthly calendar from French publisher Hugo Image. This is probably the highest-quality product on the market. (The photo below shows the back cover, and was posted at Immortal Marilyn.)

Next up, ‘Fox Presents the Films of Marilyn’ or ‘Marilyn in the Movies’ is an unusual and fun calendar. (Thanks to MarilynGeek for sharing the back cover.)

Individual photographers are well-represented this year, with calendars featuring Milton Greene, Sam Shaw (I prefer the smaller version, as the large one is colourised) and Andre de Dienes (pictured below.)

Several other calendars include miscellaneous candid and formal shots. You’re very likely to spot these in local shops, so I won’t post them here.

And for diarists, there’s good and bad news: while TeNeues are not offering a Marilyn diary this year, she makes the cover of their new Glamour Magneto Diary, featuring more artwork of MM and other vintage stars inside.

UPDATE: This calendar from ML Publishing features classic images of Marilyn in black and white.
