Photograph caption dated August 6, 1953 reads, ""Brunettes and Redheads Protest. Could be a publicity gag, but here three shapely pickets parade before Grauman's Chinese Theater, where 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' is showing, and a huge cutout of blonde Marilyn Monroe. Pickets, left to right are Avis Kimball, Lillian Pacino, and Evelyn Bernard."
