In the video above, Marilyn Monroe looks elegant as ever at the wedding reception for her third marriage to playwright Arthur Miller.

See Monroe chat with guests and share a kiss with Miller at the 1956 New York wedding around the 1:14 mark, along with other never-before-seen intimate scenes from her day-to-day life, courtesy of Vanity Fair.

The footage, captured by photographer and friend Milton H. Greene, will be displayed in the Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood along with behind-the-scene photographs starting July 16 in an exhibit titled “Some Like It Hot.”

“Seeing this film footage for the first time gives you the chills,” photographer and Morrison Hotel Gallery co-owner Timothy White told Vanity Fair. “They’re like home movies, yet one of the biggest stars of our time has obviously let her guard down and allows Milton to film her most playful, private, and important moments in her life... It’s a window into something we’ve never before seen... but always wanted to.”

Monroe was married three times before her death in 1962. She married her first husband, James Dougherty, in 1942 at age 16. The pair divorced in 1946. Her second marriage to baseball star Joe DiMaggio ended 1954. She and Miller divorced after five years of marriage in 1961, one year before her death.
