Marilyn Monroe once modeled an Idaho potato sack dress…

“Did you know that iconic film star Marilyn Monroe once modeled a dress made from a potato sack promoting the city of Twin Falls? What’s even more astonishing is the fact that she still looked incredible wearing a potato sack,” writes Greg Jannetta in a piece published by Fox News radio.

Jannetta writes that he came to find out that legendary movie actress Marilyn Monroe had a few things in common with the state of Idaho. “It turns out not only did she leave an Idaho mark on the modeling industry, but she also starred in a 1956 film that was shot just 80 miles north of Twin Falls.”

Most movie buffs have heard of the film “Bus Stop,” in which Sun Valley provided the backdrop for several scenes. Marilyn Monroe was 30-years-old when she was cast in the movie. She played a saloon singer who is being pursued by an aggressive Montana cowboy.
