Description

Her beauty was disarming. Her allure undeniable. Yet this celebrated icon of American sexuality was a carefully crafted character - a showbiz concoction that could never quite hide the real-life vulnerability of a thrown-away child desperate for love and intimacy. Married to baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, and later to playwright Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe spent her life struggling to rise above the sexual stereotype of a dumb blonde. Her most intimate friends ranged from her on-set "stand-ins" to President John F. Kennedy, yet she died alone - poisned by prescription sedatives amid circumstances that still raise suspicions 35 years later.
