This exhibit of original costumes from the Marilyn Monroe movie was photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on November 13, 2011.

The movie is based on two books written by Colin Clark, who worked as an assistant on the British set of The Prince and the Showgirl and spent time with Marilyn Monroe when her newlywed husband and playwright, Arthur Miller, left the country.

My Week with Marilyn Laurence Olivier costume
Kenneth Branagh wore this regal looking costume portraying the legendary actor 'Laurence Olivier', who himself was playing the 'Prince Regent of Carpathia'. You can compare this royal outfit to the costume that Sir Laurence Olivier actually wore in The Prince and the Showgirl movie.
