1958. The caption in the December 22 issue of LIFE magazine reads:
Marilyn’s sensitive, funny and loving impersonations start opposite with a radiant replica of Lillian Russell, who personified the Gay Nineties with 12-course suppers at Rector’s and spins in the park on a gold-plated bicycle. Lillian’s singing and dancing attracted a huge admiring audience and her beauty entranced many men. She married four times, lived on until the ’20s and died the wife of a U.S. ambassador.
