About Marilyn Monroe Biography

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was an American actress, singer, model, icon, movie star, and all-time sex symbol. After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early roles were minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve (both 1950) were well received, and as her career progressed she became known as a sex symbol. She was praised for her comedic ability in such films as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire and The Seven Year Itch, and became one of Hollywood’s most popular performers.

The typecasting of Marilyn Monroe‘s “dumb blonde” persona limited her career prospects, and she broadened her range. Her marriage to baseball player Joe DiMaggio failed. While married to playwright Arthur Miller, she studied at the Actors Studio and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions. Her dramatic performance in William Inge’s Bus Stop was hailed by critics, and she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Some Like it Hot.

The final years of Marilyn Monroe’s life were marked by illness, personal problems and a reputation for being unreliable and difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a “probable suicide”, the possibility of an accidental overdose has not been ruled out, while conspiracy theorists argue that she was murdered. In 1999, Marilyn Monroe was ranked as the sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.

About Marilyn Monroe

Critics praised Marilyn Monroe‘s transformation in Bus Stop and the press was stunned by her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller. Marilyn Monroe’s last picture The Misfits, was interrupted by exhaustion and she was dropped from the unfinished Something’s Got to Give due to chronic lateness and drug dependency. Four months later Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her Brentwood home of a drug overdose, adjudged a probable suicide.

Marilyn Monroe continued…

Marilyn Monroe had contracts with both 20th Century Fox and Columbia but they lapsed before she was cast in All About Eve, resulting in 20th Century re-signing her to a seven-year contract. Appearances in Niagara and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes launched Marilyn Monroe as a sex symbol superstar. Marilyn Monroe married and divorced baseball great Joe Dimaggio before taking a role in The Seven Year Itch.
