Marilyn Monroe, or Norma Jeane Mortenson as she was originally named, was born in 1926 in Los Angeles. Marilyn’s life has been well documented and hundreds of books have been written about her. She has also been the subject of many films, plays and songs. Marilyn appears on Smithsonian Magazine’s list of “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time”.
Marilyn’s popularity has never faded and she is still revered as one of the most iconic Hollywood stars; she certainly was one of the most photographed! She is also remembered for her troubled life – her unstable childhood, her struggle for professional respect, her well publicised relationships, her unexpected death at the age of 36 that has prompted numerous conspiracy theories.
Marilyn’s screen persona as the “sexually attractive, blonde bombshell” was a common theme in her films and she became typecast in this role. This later became an obstacle for her as many believed this was her true personality. She studied method acting and set up her own production company to change her public image and obtain other roles. Although Marilyn’s education had been basic, she was smart and she was an accomplished comedy actress. Marilyn had to be tough to survive as an actress in Hollywood in the 1950’s. In 1999, Christie’s auctioned off nearly 400 books from Marilyn’s personal library, a collection of classics ranging from Proust to Hemingway, which reflected her eclectic taste.
Marilyn Monroe’s birthday is the 1st June 1926. I have looked at some of the key numbers in her chart.
