Passage One

I know I belonged to the public and to the world,not because I was talented or even beautiful,but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.

——Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe’s career as an actress was only 16 years.She made 29 films,24 in the first 8 years of her career

Born as Norma Jeanne Mortenson on June 1,1926 in Los Angeles General Hospital,her mother,Gladys,listed the father’s name as unknown.Marilyn would never know the true identity of her father.On July 23,1946 she signed a contract with Twentieth Century-Fox Studios.She selected her mother’s family name of Monroe.From this point on she would be known as Marilyn Monroe to all her fans.

Her first serious acting job came in 1950 when she had a small but important role in“The Asphalt Jungle”and received favorable reviews.“Clash By Night”in 1952 earned her several notices.Alton Cook of the New York World-Telegram and Sun wrote“...a forceful actress,a gifted new star,worthy of all the fantasy of the press.Her role here is not very big,but she makes it dominant.”Monroe’s first leading part in a serious feature was to be in“Don’t Bother to Knock”,also filmed in 1952.

Also in 1952 Marilyn began filming“Niagara”.This film established her stardom.After her next big film,“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”,she signed her name and placed her hands and feet in the wet cement in front of the Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard,where she had visited years earlier as a child.

In Monroe’s life,Arthur Miller had a great effect on her.To Monroe,Miller represented the serious theatre and a wisdom that she found attractive.To Miller,years after,he said,“It was wonderful to be around her,she was simply overwhelming.She had so much promise.It seemed to me that she could really be a great kind of phenomenon,a terrific artist.She was endlessly fascinating;full of original observations...there wasn’t a traditional bone in her body.”

Monroe’s health had been getting worse due to increased dependency on drugs and an unhappy marriage.She often came to the set late and was unable to remember her lines.

Monroe died on August 5,1960,at the age of 36.
