Marilyn Monroe was a legend.

In her own lifetime she created a myth of what a poor girl from a deprived background could attain. For the entire world she became a symbol of the eternal feminine. But I have no words to describe the myth and the legend. I did not know this Marilyn Monroe.

We, gathered here today, knew only Marilyn - a warm human being, impulsive and shy, sensitive and in fear of rejection, yet ever avid for life and reaching out for fulfillment. I will not insult the privacy of your memory of her - a privacy she sought and treasured - kwa trying to describe her whom wewe knew to...

I am gonna start with the facts about her very too soon death. Sometimes I think about how she felt: if she thought that she had actually rose above the bar of success in showbiz, but missed the family life she could never get, had she truly anyone to lean on, and to trust.


Her lower colon was bruised a dark purple indicative of an enema.High amount of barbiturates were found in her blood but no evidence of capsules found. No water au liquid found in her room she would have gagged without water to wash all those pills down. There is too many inconsistencies. Marilyn was distrustful of her housekeeper...

During her marriage to Arthur, Marilyn had two parakeets , Butch and Bobo. Norman Rosten wrote about Butch: “Marilyn calls to him (her); he sits on her shoulder, she coos and whistles, carries him to her lips, and ole Butch leans over and kisses her. ‘You’re a cute parakeet,’ Marilyn says to Butch. Butch loves to hear her voice, figuring she’s just as cute as a parakeet herself. I believe that Butch is in upendo with her.”


Marilyn loved Hugo, but the dog seemed perpetually depressed. Marilyn once tired to cheer him up kwa giving him a teaspoon of Scotch. Soon he “rapturously”...

Take a picha of Marilyn Monroe nearly anywhere in the world and she is instantly recognizable. Ask any stranger on the mitaani, mtaa who she is and they'll know.
Young and old, male and female, people spanning multiple generations know who Marilyn Monroe is and her fame spans decades, countries and cultures.
Marilyn is one of the most well known and enduring stars of all time, yet her name evokes in the general public not much zaidi than blonde hair, breathy voice imba Happy Birthday, and a skirt, upindo flying up over her knees. To the woman who pleaded not to be made a joke, the image...

She had a baby in her teens. Marilyn never had any children. She’s had miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy that had to be terminated because it was too dangerous. There’s also myths that she had loads of abortions. This isn’t true either because it was so hard for her to get pregnant in the first place that if she got pregnant she would have wanted it because as a lot of people know, Marilyn always wanted to be a mother.
She had an affair with Tony Curtis. Tony Curtis and Marilyn highly disliked each other. Only after her death did he make a statement that they had a physical affair...

 Goodbye Norma Jean
Goodbye Norma Jean
Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew wewe at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around wewe crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set wewe on the treadmill
And they made wewe change your name

chorus
And it seems to me wewe lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role wewe ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price wewe paid
Even when you...

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if wewe can't handle me at my worst, then wewe sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that wewe can learn to let go, things go wrong so that wewe appreciate them when their right, wewe believe lies so wewe eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than...

“Marilyn adored animals; she was drawn to all living things. She would spend hundreds of dollars to try to save a storm-damaged mti and would mourn its death. She welcomed birds, providing mti houses and chakula for the many species that visited her lawn; she worried about them in bad weather. She worried about mbwa and cats. She once had a dog that was kwa nature contemplative, but she was convinced he was depressed. She did her best to make him play, and that depressed him even more; on the rare occasions when he did an antic pirouette, Marilyn would hug and kiss him, delirious with joy.”

Honestly, I have no patience for people who seem to confuse Marilyn Monroe with the characters she played onscreen. Most people who do this have seen one of three roles - Lorelei in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Girl in The Seven mwaka Itch, au Sugar in Some Like It Hot, and - though they are only a fraction of her onscreen performances - those roles have typecast her into that ‘dumb blond’ stereotype (the fact is often overlooked that those women themselves are actually all unique in their own ways, portrayed with different layers kwa Marilyn, and none of them are stupid au even one-dimensional,...

“I wish I had one tenth of Marilyn’s cleverness,” alisema uigizaji coach Natasha Lytess. “Whenever I arrived at her Doheny Drive apartment, she was studying.”

Monroe in her last picha session, for LIFE magazine, a mwezi before she died. She cared little for things and owned no jewelry. “I’m not interested in money,” Monroe once told an agent. “I just want to be wonderful.”

Eight months before her death Marilyn Monroe discovered a Spanish-style house in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. She traveled to Mexico in February 1962, enthusiastically searching shops in Cuernavaca, Taxco, Toluca and Acapulco for fabrics, furniture and tiles for her new home.

In a heartbreaking Oct. 9, 1954, letter from Yankee legend DiMaggio, her sekunde husband, he begs her to come back nyumbani three days after she announced to the world that she was divorcing him.

"Marilyn, I keep kusoma reports about wewe being sick and naturally I'm concerned … I upendo wewe and want to be with you. There is nothing I would like better than to restore your confidence in me so that I can help wewe regain your once healthy self.

"My moyo mgawanyiko, baidisha even wider seeing wewe cry in front of all these people and looking as though wewe were ready to collapse at any second."

More Than a Pretty Face.

Innocent, young, beautiful and smart
I think we should give her a head start
Hurry now before she grows old
Lets make her hot so she doesn’t turn cold

Who cares if she loves to read
It’s not her brains everyone wants to see
It doesn’t matter if she likes to bake bread
We’d rather see her naked in bed

She may be only a teen
But she’s definitely a beauty queen
We need her to be a major star
Money’s been good…but we need zaidi kwa far

Don’t put her in a dramatic role
She’s supposed to be stupid and funny… that’s her goal
Lets take pictures… thousands if we can
She’ll...

Marilyn donated time and/or money to:

An orphanage Marilyn visited during her 1962 trip to Mexico- she ripped up her initial check of $1000 and donated $10,000.

A children’s welfare organization that gave free breakfasts to underprivileged youngsters- a donation of $1000.

The maziwa Fun for Babies in 1957- Marilyn decided to give earnings from the world premiere of The Prince and the Showgirl to this charity.

A 1953 benefit for underprivileged children at Jude’s Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee-singing with Jane Russell at the Hollywood Bowl.

Among Marafiki and colleagues, Marilyn was renowned for her generosity in helping people wherever she could; stand-in Evelyn Moriarty remembers Marilyn making an anonymous donation of $1,000 to a crew member on Let’s Make upendo (1960) who needed the money to cover funeral expenses for his wife.

There isn’t enough upper lip between the end of your nose and your mouth.

I got a cold chill. This girl had something I hadn’t seen since silent pictures.
She had a kind of fantastic beauty like Gloria Swanson, when a movie nyota had to look beautiful, and she got sex on a piece of film like Jean Harlow.
Leon Shamroy, on MM’s 1946 screen test

When wewe look at Marilyn on the screen, wewe don’t want anything bad to happen to her.
You really care that she should be all right…happy.

Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most maarufu dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very maarufu nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called...

Marilyn always loved and empathized with animals. Throughout her life she had a succession of pets, and she would be deeply affected if she ever came across an animal suffering au the victim of cruelty.
This sensitivity was evident during her marriage to James Dougherty: when he once came nyumbani with a rabbit ready to skin and eat, Norma Jeane refused to touch the animal and was inconsolable for hours. Things were worse when he came nyumbani after a hunting trip with a deer that was still alive. Heartbroken, Norma Jean pleaded with him no to harm the mortally wounded creature, but it was already...

wewe know a lot of people have, oh gee, real quirky problems that they wouldn’t dare have anyone know. But one of my problems happens to show: I’m late. I guess people think that why I’m late is some kind of arrogance and I think it is the opposite of arrogance. I also feel that I’m not in this big American rush, wewe know, wewe got to go and wewe go to go fast but for no good reason. The main thing is, I want to be prepared when I get there to give a good performance au whatever to the best of my ability. A lot of people can be there on time and do nothing, which I have seen them do, and wewe know, all sit around sort of chitchatting and talking trivia about their social life. Gable alisema about me, “When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.”
