Marilyn Monroe, if she had lived, would have been 84 yesterday, the 1st of June 2010. I have admired her since I was about 11, and strangely enough, I first knew of her from a morbid but fascinating documentary about the mystery of her death.
I think today’s female celebrities, when placed next to her, pale in comparison. Most of them also look like stick figures next to this real woman. This vivacious doll had a spirit that could not be contained.
In tribute to her, I decided to post some rare pictures of Norma Jean which I found on Google. Well rare to me at least.
