the photographer who snapped the famous World War II swimsuit picture of Betty Grable, died of a heart attack Sunday while visiting his daughter here. He was 84 years old and lived in Newbury Park, Calif.
As head portrait and still photographer at 20th Century-Fox, and a predecessor company, from 1923 to 1966, Mr. Powolny captured thousands of stars in photos that ended up in newspapers, magazines and theater lobbies around the world. His subjects included Janet Gaynor, Tom Mix, Shirley Temple, Lana Turner, Gene Tierney, Humphrey Bogart, Bing Crosby, Jennifer Jones, Joan Collins and Ann-Margret.
In 1962, Mr. Powolny took the last known still photographs of Marilyn Monroe on the set of ''Something's Got to Give,'' a week before her death. But he was best known for the pin-up of Miss Grable that many G.I.'s carried during World War II. The photo showed the actress in swimsuit and pumps, peeking coyly over her shoulder.
Survivors include his wife, Peggy; a daughter, Martha Doane, and two #marilynphotographer #photographers #фотографымэрилинмонро #marilynmonroephotographers #фотографмэрилин #frankpowolny #marilynmonroephotographer #marilynphotographers #photographer #фотографмэрилинмонро #фотографымэрилин
