MARILYN MONROE

An ever-elusive fascination which certain images and artefacts perpetuate: the dress blown high above her waist, the platinum-blond hair, Chanel N. 5, the Warhol portraits which established her as one of the great pop icons of the long 20th century. More than the films and the photographs, what really remains of Marilyn Monroe as the half-centenary of her death approaches? The awareness of her power to enrich the lives of those who were close to her: a power that touched so many, but sadly was unable to save Monroe herself. Among the many initiatives underway to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death is Liz Garbus’s film Love, Marilyn.
