About this deal

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The most chilling words in this "memoir" are the prescient vision she had of herself as "the kind of girl they found dead in the hall bedroom with an empty bottle of sleeping pills in her hand. A poor condition book can still make a good reading copy but is generally not collectible unless the item is very scarce. Or does it sound like something that fits into the carefully curated persona of a dizzy little dream of a working class girl whose cup size is higher than her IQ? Written at the height of her fame but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Joe DiMaggio.

Her production company, Mariln Monroe Productions, released The Prince and The Showgirl for which she received a BAFTA Award nominationand, won a David di Donatello award. As far as I can make out, women's friendships with each other are based on a gush of lies and pretty speeches than mean nothing. There is apparently some doubt as to whether or not Marilyn actually wrote the words in this book, or if someone else did it for her.Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926 and baptized Norma Jeane Baker, in Los Angeles, California. DJ glossy with a photograph of younger Marilyn on front, her face on spine, praise on back, many photographs throughout that are not published elsewhere, some in color.

Marilyn is a powerful chameleon who had a profound impact on the mortals she came into contact with. Three nights ago, for the umpteenth time, I watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and for the first time in many viewings I took my eyes off Jane Russell (my favorite, the sex symbol a man could have a beer with) and gazed steadily at the perfectly-crafted image of Marilyn Monroe. Her early film appearances were minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve (both 1950), drew attention.Little known and long unavailable, this autobiography, written by actress and starlet Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962), describes her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Joe DiMaggio. As her story continues to be reevaluated and retold, including in the forthcoming Netflix biopic Blonde, starring Ana de Armas, this book is the key to separating fact from fiction.

She didn't know her father, and her mother was sent to a mental institution when Marilyn was little! It answers all the questions about Marilyn's youth and takes you up until she starts touring with the troops.And that “women’s friendships with each other are based on a gush of lies and pretty speeches that mean nothing. And there's one anecdote--about a nice young war veteran hawking miniature silver stars in Union Station who asks Norma Jean to marry him--which sounds just like one of Hecht's "cold city with a warm heart" vignettes, straight out of something like his own Miracle in the Rain.

First of all, a pass is never entirely unpleasant because men who make passes are usually bright and good-looking. but then again, at the end of this book, the collaborator's note says: "This is where Marilyn's manuscript ended when she gave it to me.Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon—-from the unique perspective of the icon herself. How could the image of one woman, dead for fifty years, still channel so powerfully the archetype of The Goddess? You'd think they were all trying to seduce each other the way they flatter and flirt when they're together.
