Marilyn Monroe talks to Frank Sinatra as an unidentified man stands between them during a party on the set of the musical "Can-Can" in this 1960 photo. Just weeks before her death in 1962, Sinatra planned to marry Monroe "in an effort to save her from herself," according to a biography serialized in London's Daily Mail.
