I am gonna start with the facts about her very too soon death. Sometimes I think about how she felt: if she thought that she had actually rose above the bar of success in showbiz, but missed the family life she could never get, had she truly anyone to lean on, and to trust.


Her lower colon was bruised a dark purple indicative of an enema.High amount of barbiturates were found in her blood but no evidence of capsules found. No water hoặc liquid found in her room she would have gagged without water to wash all those pills down. There is too many inconsistencies. Marilyn was distrustful of her housekeeper...

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...

Take a bức ảnh of Marilyn Monroe nearly anywhere in the world and she is instantly recognizable. Ask any stranger on the đường phố, street who she is and they'll know.
Young and old, male and female, people spanning multiple generations know who Marilyn Monroe is and her fame spans decades, countries and cultures.
Marilyn is one of the most well known and enduring stars of all time, yet her name evokes in the general public not much thêm than blonde hair, breathy voice hát Happy Birthday, and a váy flying up over her knees. To the woman who pleaded not to be made a joke, the image...

bạn know a lot of people have, oh gee, real quirky problems that they wouldn’t dare have anyone know. But one of my problems happens to show: I’m late. I guess people think that why I’m late is some kind of arrogance and I think it is the opposite of arrogance. I also feel that I’m not in this big American rush, bạn know, bạn got to go and bạn go to go fast but for no good reason. The main thing is, I want to be prepared when I get there to give a good performance hoặc whatever to the best of my ability. A lot of people can be there on time and do nothing, which I have seen them do, and bạn know, all sit around sort of chitchatting and talking trivia about their social life. Gable đã đưa ý kiến about me, “When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.”

Fortunately, to cheer her up, Hugo came to mind, and with a squeal she runs to the car, calls me to tham gia her, and we’re off to get Hugo, who was getting a check-up at the local kennel. One could never tell bởi looking at him whether hoặc not these sudden reunions pleased him. His face would mask every emotion; like a great actor he kept bạn guessing. At times—I had seen this reunion often—he would almost smile, but a stiff upper lip got in the way, leaving Hugo with nothing, absolutely nothing.

Hugo loves Marilyn, and she adores him. Beauty and the Beast—Hugo bore out this maxim perfectly....

Marilyn always loved and empathized with animals. Throughout her life she had a succession of pets, and she would be deeply affected if she ever came across an animal suffering hoặc the victim of cruelty.
This sensitivity was evident during her marriage to James Dougherty: when he once came trang chủ with a rabbit ready to skin and eat, Norma Jeane refused to touch the animal and was inconsolable for hours. Things were worse when he came trang chủ after a hunting trip with a deer that was still alive. Heartbroken, Norma Jean pleaded with him no to harm the mortally wounded creature, but it was already...

During her marriage to Arthur, Marilyn had two parakeets , Butch and Bobo. Norman Rosten wrote about Butch: “Marilyn calls to him (her); he sits on her shoulder, she coos and whistles, carries him to her lips, and ole Butch leans over and kisses her. ‘You’re a cute parakeet,’ Marilyn says to Butch. Butch loves to hear her voice, figuring she’s just as cute as a parakeet herself. I believe that Butch is in tình yêu with her.”


Marilyn loved Hugo, but the dog seemed perpetually depressed. Marilyn once tired to cheer him up bởi giving him a teaspoon of Scotch. Soon he “rapturously”...

Honestly, I have no patience for people who seem to confuse Marilyn Monroe with the characters she played onscreen. Most people who do this have seen one of three roles - Lorelei in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Girl in The Seven năm Itch, hoặc Sugar in Some Like It Hot, and - though they are only a fraction of her onscreen performances - those roles have typecast her into that ‘dumb blond’ stereotype (the fact is often overlooked that those women themselves are actually all unique in their own ways, portrayed with different layers bởi Marilyn, and none of them are stupid hoặc even one-dimensional,...

“I think I had many problems as the tiếp theo starlet keeping the Hollywood Người sói from my door. These Người sói just could not understand me. They would tell me, ‘But Marilyn, you’re not playing the game the way bạn should. Be smart. You’ll never get anywhere in this business diễn xuất the way bạn do.’ My answer to them would be, ‘The only diễn xuất I’ll do is for the camera.’ I was determined, no one was going to use me hoặc my body—even if he could help my career. I’ve never gone out with a man I didn’t want to. No one, not even the studio, could force me to ngày someone. The one thing I hate thêm than anything else is being used. I’ve always worked hard for the sake of someday becoming a talented actress. I knew I would make it someday if I only kept at it and worked hard without lowering my principles and pride in myself.” (Marilyn Monroe)
“Marilyn adored animals; she was drawn to all living things. She would spend hundreds of dollars to try to save a storm-damaged cây and would mourn its death. She welcomed birds, providing cây houses and thực phẩm for the many species that visited her lawn; she worried about them in bad weather. She worried about chó and cats. She once had a dog that was bởi nature contemplative, but she was convinced he was depressed. She did her best to make him play, and that depressed him even more; on the rare occasions when he did an antic pirouette, Marilyn would hug and Kiss him, delirious with joy.”

- Norman Rosten, poet (via Metamorphosis bởi David Willis & Stephen Schmidt)

There isn’t enough upper lip between the end of your nose and your mouth.
Emmeline Snively to Norma Jeane Dougherty

I got a cold chill. This girl had something I hadn’t seen since silent pictures.
She had a kind of fantastic beauty like Gloria Swanson, when a movie ngôi sao had to look beautiful, and she got sex on a piece of film like Jean Harlow.
Leon Shamroy, on MM’s 1946 screen test

When bạn look at Marilyn on the screen, bạn don’t want anything bad to happen to her.
You really care that she should be all right…happy.

Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most được ưa chuộng dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very được ưa chuộng nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called...

She had a baby in her teens. Marilyn never had any children. She’s had miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy that had to be terminated because it was too dangerous. There’s also myths that she had loads of abortions. This isn’t true either because it was so hard for her to get pregnant in the first place that if she got pregnant she would have wanted it because as a lot of people know, Marilyn always wanted to be a mother.
She had an affair with Tony Curtis. Tony Curtis and Marilyn highly disliked each other. Only after her death did he make a statement that they had a physical affair...

More Than a Pretty Face.

Innocent, young, beautiful and smart
I think we should give her a head start
Hurry now before she grows old
Lets make her hot so she doesn’t turn cold

Who cares if she loves to read
It’s not her brains everyone wants to see
It doesn’t matter if she likes to bake bread
We’d rather see her naked in bed

She may be only a teen
But she’s definitely a beauty queen
We need her to be a major star
Money’s been good…but we need thêm bởi far

Don’t put her in a dramatic role
She’s supposed to be stupid and funny… that’s her goal
Lets take pictures… thousands if we can
She’ll...

Marilyn Monroe was a legend.

In her own lifetime she created a myth of what a poor girl from a deprived background could attain. For the entire world she became a symbol of the eternal feminine. But I have no words to describe the myth and the legend. I did not know this Marilyn Monroe.

We, gathered here today, knew only Marilyn - a warm human being, impulsive and shy, sensitive and in fear of rejection, yet ever avid for life and reaching out for fulfillment. I will not insult the privacy of your memory of her - a privacy she sought and treasured - bởi trying to describe her whom bạn knew to...
