About Marilyn Monroe:

"Her beauty of face and figure and sweetness of spirit had brightened the world of untold thousands of men and women. Thankful for what they saw of her, they found life sweeter because she lived and sadder because she died." - Paris Match - August, 1962




About Marilyn Monroe:

“Marilyn decided she had to go out to get some shopping, so she took me with her. She wore a crazy disguise- dark wig and dark glasses, and people were looking because of it. She walked like Marilyn but didn’t look like her. There was a homeless man, and Marilyn walked right up to him, not at all afraid. “Things are not going well at the moment, are they?” she said. “No, they’re not.” he said. She opened her purse and gave him $5 before walking on”. -Curtice Taylor, son of ‘The Misfits' producer Frank Taylor




“Sometimes I think I was more in control of my life years and years ago, and yet one should make progress; one should learn more every year and become…well, if not happier, then calmer and more able to handle your problems. But I’m not. Sometimes I just seem to make more problems for myself. I do. It makes me feel I haven’t grown up as much as I should have by now.” – Marilyn Monroe




Miniseries “Marilyn”

EW has confirmed that Sarandon has joined Marilyn, Lifetime’s upcoming four-hour miniseries. Based J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, the miniseries promises to reveal “what the iconic superstar succeeded in hiding from an all-too-invasive world.”

Sarandon will play Monroe’s mentally ill mother. The official description adds, “Marilyn is both the personification of sex, whose first marriage ironically collapses because of her frigidity, and a fragile artist who seeks the approval and protection of men. But after tumultuous marriages with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, she realizes she has the strength to stand on her own. She becomes the Face and Voice of an era, yet wants most of all to be someone’s mother and someone’s little girl. She’s the Marilyn you haven’t seen before, the artist who, by masking the truth with an image, gives her greatest performance.”

Marilyn will be written by Stephen Kronish (24) and directed by Laurie Collyer. It’s expected to premiere in 2015

Here’s the link to it guys.

I hope they don’t f*** it up…fingers crossed

Taraborelli’s book was a good read and reliable.

I think Susan Sarandon is a very good choice. I’m sure she will do her justice cause she’s an amazing actress. I’m so curious who will be playing Marilyn though

The smart one says the eye
is not truly round. His are,
though, fat with looking.

Marilyn’s Poems

They taught my body
to squeeze grapes.
Warm wine pours out.
And once or twice,
a slick skin.

Marilyn’s Poems

Nite of the nite
Soothing
Darkness
Refreshes
Air
Seems different
Night has no eyes nor no one
Silence
Except for the night itself.

Marilyn’s Poems

I could have loved you once
and even said it
But you went away,
When you came back it was too late
And love was a forgotten word.
Remember?
