    Something will draw my attention about Marilyn Monroe and I obsess about her-

    For me, sadly , she was most attractive shortly before she died. Check her out in the close ups (at around 16:00-18:30) of these very candid retakes during the filming of the unintentionally appropriately titled “Something’s Gotta Give.”



    And here is an interview with fotos taken two days before her death.

    A couple of more good clips for those interested-
    Good footage and insight from people working with her toward the end of her life-


    An audio interview from 1960 where she gives an account, amongst other things, of being a stutterer in her early and late-teens.


    Interesting fact is that she was well read, and her library of 400 books included such works as Homer’s The Iliad, Ulysses by James Joyce (how’s that for a juxtaposition of titles?), and Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. I’ve only read the latter which was an assignment for a 20th century American literature class I took in university.

    Here are a couple of quotes of hers, some of which were later found in private journals-
    they range from humorous to dark-

    “I’ve been on a calendar, but I’ve never been on time.”

    “Dreaming about being an actress is more exciting than being one.”

    “The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.”

    “What good am I? I can’t have kids. I can’t cook. I’ve been divorced three times. Who would want me?”

    “I’m alone; I’m always alone,no matter what.”
