Marilyn Monroe: They Died Too Young - Marilyn Monroe by Esther Selsdon

Gebundene Ausgabe - Parragon Plus- 78 Seiten - Englisch

Early Years
In 1899 Della Mae Hogan, having ear-lier scandalized her local Missouri com-munity by encouraging local lads to play `kiss-me-quick' in a variety of neigh-bourhood farmyards, came to her senses and married a house painter, ten years her senior, called Otis Elmer Monroe. Just a few months later, Otis, who had high hopes of becoming a famous artist and moving to Paris, France, took his wife across the border to Mexico, where he was sure that they would save enough money to facilitate their trip to Europe.

Instead, in 1902, Della gave birth to a girl, Gladys Pearl, and the Monroes, with their lofty dreams fading, moved to Los Angeles where they had heard that the trams, if not the streets, needed covering in gold. In 1905, Della gave birth to a boy called Marion. Work became scarcer and Otis began to drink. By 1908 Otis was semi-paralysed. He was in the final stages of syphilis of the brain, and the cure was not to be invented for another year — which was too late to save Otis. He died in 1909 at the age of forty-three.

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.
