About the Book

This book is essentially a filmography interlaced with a complex biographical account of Marilyn Monroe’s life and loves throughout her career. A lengthy introduction explains her traumatic early life and mysterious, unexpected, much talked about death. Behind the scenes information, cast and crew lists, box office grosses and photographs are given for each film. There is a Foreword by Academy Award–winning actor (West Side Story) George Chakiris, who worked as a chorus dancer in two of Monroe’s biggest productions, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and There’s No Business Like Show Business (1954). This is a definitive summation of the Hollywood icon’s career.
