During her short life, Marilyn Monroe was globally revered as the sex symbol of the 1950s and 60s, and the originator of 'bombshell blonde' image. Today we understand her better as someone keenly self-aware of the artifice involved in playing that part, and as a world-class actor poised to break out of the role that Hollywood assigned her. The conversations gathered here - spanning her emergence on the scene to just days before her death at age 36 - show Monroe at her sharpest and most insightful on the thorny topics of ambition, fame, femininity, desire, and more. Also features an introduction from Sady Doyle.
