To Joltin' Joe she was the love of his life as evidenced by his careful preservation of her grave site and his desire to see her again after his death.

Even the screen beauties of today imitate MM by striking one or more of her famous poses while done up in the style of that era.

But why, in your opinion Gaines?

Soft and pliant femininity? Geometric perfection? Was it looks or demeanour? Why d'you think she's become so timeless?
