Publisher's Summary

She vigorously played the dumb-blonde stereotype in her movie roles, but there is nothing at all dumb about Marilyn Monroe. Born to a single mother who suffered from severe mental illness, the odds were stacked against the girl originally named Norma Jeane from the very beginning. She became a ward of the state and bounced around from foster home to foster home. The fact that she rose from such impoverished beginnings to become one of the top-billed acts in Hollywood speaks for itself.

Inside you will read about....

  • From foster child to movie star
  • The scene with the white dress
  • Marilyn the Jew
  • Diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia
  • Marilyn’s first overdose
  • The presidential affair
  • Locked in the psych ward
  • And much more!

Discover the life and legend that is Marilyn Monroe.

Loved It

Well done. I still feel she was murdered and deserves Justice . She had crawled out of a hard time and was really looking forward to her future
