"Your Legend Never Did"


In the early morning hours of August 5, 1962, legendary screen goddess Marilyn Monroe was found dead in the bedroom of her Los Angeles home at the age of 36.

From the moment her body was discovered, her death became as much of a media circus as most of her life had been, rife with sordid speculation and half-truths. Marilyn’s life had never been an easy one. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, her mother Gladys was mentally unstable so Norma spent the bulk of her childhood in orphanages and foster homes. She married in 1942, and while her husband was serving in World War II she began modeling. By 1946, her marriage was over, but her movie career was just beginning. She was signed by Twentieth Century Fox and changed her name to Marilyn Monroe.








"Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude"

Never found her very attractive and think she's way over rated and her acting was not believable.

Check out *Niagara* for reference.

Now Jean Peters, that's another story.

With the passing of time and adulthood comes the realization that she was not very happy for the whole of her life. I would not want to be her nor Michael Jackson who seemed to also be a 'troubled soul' much happier left working in the S.S. Kresge store on Main St.

Its too bad she couldn't be that pretty sweet brunette in the top pic, but she was abused and used by adults in her youth and the system as she got older.

MM got involved with an Irish Mafia family. And, like a number of young women who got involved with that particular Irish Mafia family, she died an un-natural death.
