Marilyn: Her Life in Her Own Words: Marilyn Monroe's Revealing Last Words and Photographs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A beautifully illustrated celebration of the Marilyn America continues to adore. On her thirty-sixth birthday on June 1, 1962, author George Barris, internationally renowned photojournalist, arrived on the set of Some Like It Hot to interview and photograph Marilyn. They had first met eight years earlier and become good friends; now they agreed to realize Marilyn's dream of putting together a picture book-autobiography. The two began with high hopes and some lengthy, substantive talks included here, but the project was never completed: Just two months after they'd begun, the quixotic Marilyn was found dead. It remains Barris's belief that she did not die by her own hand, but was, in fact, murdered.

Had she lived, Marilyn Monroe would have celebrated her 75th birthday on June 1, 2001. Here, with a new appreciation from her old friend George Barris, is a loving remembrance and farewell to a woman whose spirit still touches us all.
