From the cover: Even many years after her death, Marilyn Monroe is still one of the greatest legends of the twentieth century. In her films she projected a unique and fascinating persona a child-woman who was both innocent and full of sexuality, someone whom men desired, but who women found unthreatening. In real life, she was a beautiful and complex woman who felt deeply insecure, and who just wanted to be loved enough to wipe out her unhappy past.
Marilyn Monroe: Unseen Archives charts Marilyns fascinating life, from her unhappy childhood, through her years as a superstar, to her tragic and untimely death in 1962. The collection of photographs documents the important events in her life: her early years, her films, her marriages to baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, her battles with the studio and her decline in health. They not only include movie stills and portraits, but also many other less well known pictures taken during her career. The photographs are accompanied by detailed and informative captions, which give a rounded portrait of one of the worlds greatest film stars.
