Marilyn Monroe: Forever Marilyn by Marie Cahill (HB)

Marie Cahill
On June 1, 1926, Gladys Pearl Baker Mor-tensen gave birth to her third child, a daughter whom she named Norma Jeane. Gladys was not married and little Norma Jeane grew up never knowing—but always seeking—her father. The child was often without her mother as well, for Gladys could not care for Norma Jeane and left her with foster parents. When Norma Jeane was about six, she and her mother did live together briefly in a small white bungalow that Gladys had bought after years of scrimping and saving, but their time together was brief.

Gladys was plagued by mental illness and spent the rest of her life in and out of institutions, unable to care for Norma Jeane. At 16, to escape life in an orphanage, Norma Jeane married Jim Dougherty. By 20, she was divorced and on her way to Holly-wood... and stardom. Norma Jeane became Marilyn Monroe, one of the world's most glamorous movie stars, but deep inside she was still Norma Jeane, a tortured soul who only wanted to be loved. She sought solace in sleeping pills and champagne, but the combination was deadly.

On August 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead of a drug overdose. Whether her death was an accident or a suicide will never be known. She died alone, still seeking the love and security she had been denied as a child. Almost 30 years after her death, the legacy of Marilyn Monroe persists. Innocent yet sen-suous, vulnerable yet strong, Marilyn Monroe had a unique magic that will live on forever.

Marilyn Monroe

Als Norma Jean Baker am 1.6.1926 in Los Angeles geborene amerikanische Filmschauspielerin und Sängerin. Verdiente sich nach der Schulzeit erstes Geld als Fabrikarbeiterin, wurde dann als Pin-up-Girl entdeckt und machte Furore als erstes „Playmate of the Month" des US-Herrenmagazins Playboy. Neben ihren unvergessenen Filmen wie „Manche mögen's heiß", „Asphalt Dschungel" oder „Das verflixte siebte Jahr" versuchte Sich Marilyn Monroe auch als Sängerin. Erfolg hatte sie allerdings in den Hitparaden keinen! Lieder, die sie in den Filmen sang, wurden zwar anerkannt ~ aber die Platten kaufte deswegen niemand.

Am 5. August 1962 starb Marilyn Monroe an einer Überdosis Schlaftabletten, nachdem ihre 3 Ehen mit Jim Dougherty (1942-1946), dem Baseball-Star Joe di Maggie (1953-1954) und dem Schriftsteller Arthur Miller (1956-1960) allesamt gescheitert waren. Die populärsten Songs aus den Filmen wurden 1972 noch einmal auf einer LP zusammengefaßt und als „Remember Marilyn" veröffentlicht.
