Description

Marilyn Monroe was one of the most famous screen actors of all time. Known for her charisma and beauty, her private life and turbulent health made headlines throughout her career, and her early death cemented her iconic status. 

But how was she shaped by her disrupted childhood? Did she change Hollywood – or did it destroy her? And why does her legend still inspire and exert such power, 60 years after her death? 

This is a Short History Of Marilyn Monroe.


Written by Kate Harrison. With thanks to Michelle Morgan, author of Marilyn Monroe – Private and Undisclosed.

A mediocre attention chaser who felt entitled to other women's husbands and refused to act professional. Her childish behaviour led to Clark Gable's early death.
