In a heartbreaking Oct. 9, 1954, letter from Yankee legend DiMaggio, her một giây husband, he begs her to come back trang chủ three days after she announced to the world that she was divorcing him.

"Marilyn, I keep đọc reports about bạn being sick and naturally I'm concerned … I tình yêu bạn and want to be with you. There is nothing I would like better than to restore your confidence in me so that I can help bạn regain your once healthy self.

"My tim, trái tim chẻ, phân chia, split even wider seeing bạn cry in front of all these people and looking as though bạn were ready to collapse at any second."

He ends the letter bởi saying, "I can tell you, I tình yêu you, sincerely – way deep in my heart, irregardless of anything. Will bạn call me tonight if bạn should receive this letter bởi then? It will be happily received."

Says Nolan, "It's such a heartfelt, honest letter. Of course he wants her back but his first and number one concern unselfishly is her welfare. He is worried about her. That's a true tình yêu there."
