An actress & her dance coach

Dance · Film

Two utterly amazing human beings, beautiful people, professional collaborators, and personal friends. He wielded enormous influence on her screen persona and on her career. This photo represents, for me, a most delirious encounter between dance and film worlds; nothing from Astaire or Kelly however great, speaks [to me] as powerfully. Here we have Jack Cole, who delved fearlessly into the fray of sex and gender role-play. Seizing on the most powerful symbol of female sexuality to ever appear on film, he guided her. Marilyn’s other mentorships are known: the Russian Natasha Lytess, the Strasberg method-acting clan had her in their clutches. But following “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” Marilyn trusted one coach like no other: the choreographer Jack Cole.

Thank you,, for the photo
