Marilyn was controversial to say the least and somewhat outrageous for her time. Nonetheless she captured the imagination of millions and became one of the most popular celebrities of her era.

When Marilyn signed with 20th Century Fox studios on the 23rd of July 1946, she took her mother’s surname of Monroe and from then on, she was known only as Marilyn Monroe.

Marilyn Monroe starred in several films including:

  • Scudda-Hoo – Scudda-Hay
  • Some Like It Hot
  • Ladies of the Chorus
  • The Misfits

The Misfits was her last film before her death on August 4th, 1962. Marilyn Monroe died at home alone, just 36 years old.
