Item description for Monroe by Paul Duncan F X Feeney...

The iconic bombshell

"Forget everything you think you know about this person," Elia Kazan cautioned, in his autobiography. The icon we cherish under the name Marilyn Monroe was in truth the inspired creation of a smart, voluptuous, star struck and self-motivated fantasist named Norma Jean Mortenson. A pure product of Hollywood, she abides across time as brightly as two other self-inventors, Charlie Chaplin and Cary Grant. Few things make an afterlife blaze more mythically than a sexual reputation---ask Cleopatra. Norma Jean paid a huge price to become Marilyn, yet here she is---still setting the bar high for all other would-be goddesses.

Reviews - What do customers think about Monroe?

Nice Pictures!  Mar 4, 2008
Thats one especially great thing I can say about this book is the quantity of pictures. I own alot of Monroe books and I got alot more from this book than I expected. Lots of valuable info for new Marilyn fans also. Great book at great price!
1st rate Marilyn Monroe Primer!  May 7, 2007
This is a good book for those that are "new" to Marilyn.

Packed with photographs, most in color & a few rare shots; the story about Marilyn's life & films is rather skimpy however. A two page summary of Marilyn's life introduces us to the subject at hand. Picture captions "teasing" the reader with tidbits of information will hopefully pique one's interest enough to read other books to obtain the entire story of Monroe's life because that is it for the facts this book relates! Marilyn's quotes are scattered liberally throughout the book in 3 different languages, as is all text; English, German, & French.

Strangely enough, even when dealing with the parameters of this format; the film BUS STOP though highly praised is only given two photographs. Most of Marilyn's later work gets 6 or more pictures with the narrative captions.
