Marilyn Monroe (1926)

Monroe was an American actress, world-famous sex symbol, and cultural icon. The onetime model made her screen debut in 1948 and was at first patronized by critics, but she studied acting and eventually won more challenging roles. Her private life, including her marriages to baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, has been subject to intense scrutiny, and her death from a barbiturate overdose at age 36 only increased her mystique. Why was her childhood particularly tumultuous? More...

She was a short-lived brouhaha who suffered at the hands of vultures.

I have always thought of Marilyn as a World Icon. She has beauty none like no other. I would love to meet her in person, and discuss the things that she battled through her life. She survived as long as she could. <3Pray

Could have been a princess married to Joe DiMaggo. Our "Lady Marilyn" Jackie, Grace and Di would pale to her beauty...

Tumultuous childhood!

She is a mirror-image of the sexual perversity of the American society... she and J.F. Kennedy were having a romp,too. She actually looks very repulsive... poor creature...she made a clown of herself like the money-driven porno business ... sexually perverse males and females see her as a sex-symbol... did Arthur Miller marry her for her inner worth!!!! Ha, ha, ha...

Marilyn Monroe overcame her unhappy childhood - riddled with a mother locked in an asylum and herself in many foster homes - to become one of the sexiest stars ever to grace the screen. Marilyn's untimely death forever kept her young and cast her as a twentieth century icon.

Family Tragedies
Both her maternal grandparents and her mother were committed to mental institutions. Her uncle killed himself. Her father died in a motorcycle accident three years after her birth.

Her childhood has been described as "Oliver Twist in girl's clothing."

During her mother's stays in asylums, she was farmed out to twelve sets of foster parents. Two families were religious fanatics; one gave her empty whisky bottles to play with instead of dolls.

At another stage, she lived in a drought area with a family of seven. She spent two years in a Los Angeles orphanage, wearing a uniform she detested.

By the time she was 9 years old, Norma Jean had begun to stammer--an affliction rare among females.

Her dream since childhood had been to be a movie star, and she succeeded beyond her wildest imaginings. The conviction of her mother's best friend was borne out; she had told the little girl, day after day:

"Don't worry. You're going to be a beautiful girl when you get big. You're going to be a movie star. Oh, I feel it in my bones."

Nunnally Johnson, the producer and writer, understood that Miss Monroe was something special. Marilyn, he said, was "a phenomenon of nature, like Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon.

"You can't talk to it. It can't talk to you. All you can do is stand back and be awed by it," he said.

This figure in the minds of millions was difficult to analyze statistically. Her dimensions--37-23- 37--were voluptuous but not extraordinary. She stood 5 feet 5 1/2 inches tall. She had soft blonde hair, wide, dreamy, gray-blue eyes. She spoke in a high baby voice that was little more than a breathless whisper.
