The girl who became the legendary Marilyn Monroe was Norma Jeane Baker, a charming brunette from Los Angeles. Throughout her childhood she had held onto her dream of becoming a movie star – a dream that came true when she was given a screen test in 1946. Although the test carried no sound, her incredible presence in front of the camera was enough to convince 20th Century Fox to sign her as a contract player, beginning her meteoric rise to stardom.
 
Portrayed as the quintessential blonde, Monroe starred in such box office hits as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Some Like It Hot, and The Seven Year Itch. Not content to be seen as merely a typical blonde however, she strived to gain recognition for her acting ability as well. After studying under Lee Strasburg at the Actors Studio in New York City, she returned to Hollywood to star in more serious films, such as Bus Stop and The Misfits.
 
In 1962, her tragic death at age 36 caused worldwide shock. But today, more than 30 years after her death, the legend of Marilyn Monroe refuses to die. With her rare combination of allure and vulnerability she continues to captivate audiences around the world – forever epitomizing the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age.
