About this title


Published to coincide with the celebration of Marilyn Monroe’s 75th birthday in 2001, Blonde Heat combines new research, exclusive interviews, rare movie stills, and dozens of behind-the-screen photos to present a revealing look at the enduring star who exemplifies Hollywood sex appeal and glamour.

This mesmerizing biography exposes the untold details behind Marilyn’s screen tests; her television broadcasts; the scenes cut from her films; and the story behind her last, unfinished movie. Readers will uncover never-before-revealed information about Marilyn’s 30 motion pictures, her 1946 Fox screen test and opportunities as an extra, her television ads, and even her part in the televised birthday party for President Kennedy.

Blonde Heat features over 40 firsthand recollections with the friends and colleagues who knew Marilyn best—including such notable screen legends as Ginger Rogers, Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and director Billy Wilder—as well as her own costumer, drama coach, make-up artist, and stand-in. Featured as well are exclusive interviews with those who have never before spoken publicly about Marilyn Monroe until now, such as actress Jean Peters, former wife of Howard Hughes. The result is the definitive, no-holds-barred look at the professional life of this legendary but troubled star.

Features exclusive interviews with such stars as:
Billy Wilder
Eli Wallach
Ginger Rogers
Jack Lemmon
Jean Peters
Tony Curtis
