Remembering Marilyn

FacebookTwitterPinterestTumblrBookmark/FavoritesEmailPrintFriendlyShare

In case you weren’t away, Sunday was the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death. Without a doubt, Marilyn is the biggest Hollywood star of all time. An icon. As well as a complicated woman. And a troubled soul. She contained multitudes.

I put together these images as a remembrance of her.  I also wrote this post about Marilyn and her costumer of choice, William Travilla.

  1. My heart still breaks for her. She always wanted a child and I know how that feels. I adopted a boy and then gave birth to a girl. People used her and she needed love and seemed to receive it from the most unworthy men. Her mother was ill and she had no love from a guardian. I am sure God took her right into heaven and she rests with him. She was so childlike and naiveté.

  2. It’s interesting to see some of these pictures, such as the one of her reading, and the one taken before her dress was blown. It’s a peek into who she really was and not what media made her. As she said, ——”First, I’m trying to convince myself that I’m a person. Then maybe I’ll convince my self that I’m an actress.”—– Well, Yes Marilyn, you are quite a person.
    Awesome job to who ever put this together :)

  3. Wonderful tribute, thank you for putting this together! You’re right, she was as complex and troubled as she was lovely.
