Pages are clean and tight; appears as if unused. Lavishly illustrated with over 600 photographs in color and b/w, it's obvious the camera adored her, in her journey from Norma Jeane Baker to Marilyn Monroe, Hollywood legend. 51 years after her death, her life and mystique are still enthralling. As the late, great playwright [and ex-husband] says: "She was like champagne on the screen." "While many of her film role were undermanding, and a question mark still hangs over her acting abilities, there is no doubt that when a camera was turned upon her, Marilyn was magic....explores every aspect of Marilyn, both familiar and the obscure...in her 30 film roles, as well as at every stage of her life. A concise but authoritative text traces her rise from model to superstar, as well as charting her private joys and tragedies..." oversized, heavy, 5#.
