12 Facts That’ll Blow Your Mind In One Sentence

JFK watches Marilyn perform Happy Birthday Mr. President. Contrary to rumour Jackie Kennedy didn’t decide to stay away because of Marilyn’s presence. She didn’t care for these big political fundraisers and had always planned to be participating in a horse show elsewhere.
Often cropped to make it appear much more intimate that it actually was. The room was full of people.
JFK is on the left side of the photograph and Marilyn is on the right side. Marilyn’s “date” for the night was her ex-father-in-law Isidore Miller. Here they are watching Diahann Carroll perform.
No she wasn’t! Peter Lawford’s introduction of “the late Marilyn Monroe” was a running joke. Marilyn was on time and made her entrance exactly when she was supposed to.
Rumour has it that Marilyn was drunk and her actions while performing were wildly out of control. Not true. These rehearsal pictures show that everything was planned and she performed it exactly as she wanted to.
In this news report Marilyn isn’t even mentioned as part of the line-up. She was just another performer. It is also good to remember that this was a political fundraiser for the Democratic party. It wasn’t exactly an intimate dinner.
As you can see from this page of the programme, Marilyn was one of many people performing at the fundraiser and she didn’t even close the night.
One only has to look at the samples of Marilyn’s art on the left of this graphic to see that they look nothing like the picture of the rose that she supposedly painted for JFK.
A little bit of research proves that this is a fake. Even though this was sold at auction and some poor sucker bought it.
10. Now let’s tackle some of those fake pictures shall we?
*sigh* Anyone with eyes can see that these are fake. They are good fakes but fakes nonetheless.
on the ridiculousness of this one. It’s even posted at the Hollywood Museum!
Marilyn Monroe is probably the most Iconic movie actress in the world. She is also the most maligned. Not a month goes by without a lurid story being splashed across the tabloids and the internet. And everyone knows if it’s on the internet it must be true right? Wrong. With a little research (something biographers seem to be lacking) you can uncover the truth.
