Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was a legend already during her lifetime. Her life was the story of Cinderella – from an unknown girl to the idolised and adored megastar. She grew up in humble conditions and managed what rarely anybody achieves. She became so famous that, to this very day, just under 50 years after her death, she is still remembered.
It is said that the movie star received more fan post in the first years after her tragic death than many a Hollywood star in those times. Marilyn Monroe was an incredibly beautiful woman who was very expressional in her films and on photographs.
