“Once upon a time there was a girl with moonlight in her eyes, the breeze ruffled through her hair, but that was once upon a time, and once upon a time never comes again.” A few poignant words from a special song but if you let your imagination run wild that girl can only be Marilyn. A picture is worth a thousand words, but in the case of Marilyn Monroe it is even more so. Each and every photograph or piece of artwork depicting her image is truly unrivaled in its beauty. The movies Marilyn starred in are all unique, simply because she was part of the cast. From her first image on the big screen as a mere walk on extra, to the last image she gave us from her unreleased movie, Marilyn’s image radiated and glowed. This book will take you on a special journey along with Marilyn as she always gave 100% to her legions of fans, all the while without knowing how great a movie star she truly was. The journey is filled with facts and nuances that will help to convince you, if you are not already convinced, that Marilyn’s body of work in motion pictures must be recognized with an Oscar. The journey will uncover how Marilyn approached the challenges of her profession. In contrast, the sheer number of those actors and actresses that share her quest, but only to be denied, will surprise you. The journey is filled with hundreds of photographs, artwork and images from around the world, some which you will see for the very first time. There is a section of Marilyn on postage stamps from not only the United States, but from far away places that she never visited. Also included is a complete filmography which lists the entire cast, a synopsis and reviews. When the journey is over, hopefully you will be convinced that Marilyn most definitely deserves her Oscar. So get ready for the definitive book about everyone’s favorite actress, and how she approached her roles and perfected her trade.
