Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe

The actress who would become Marilyn Monroe, also known to her fans as “The Blond Bombshell.” was born Norma Jean Baker on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. Norma Jean spent much of her childhood in foster homes when her mother was placed in a mental institution. At age 16, to escape foster home life, she married her boyfriend Jimmy Dougherty and took a job at an aircraft plant. An Army photographer sent to take pictures of women helping the war effort suggested she apply for a modeling position. She took his advice. By 1946 she was a successful model, signed a movie contract, got divorced and changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. Her film career was launched in 1950 in small part as a ditzy, sexy blond in All About Eve. Her marriages were constant fodder for the fan magazines, especially when she married the baseball icon Joe DiMaggio and divorced nine months later. Her third marriage to playwright Arthur Miller was also a failure. Tragically, on August 5, 1962 she died from an overdose of sleeping pills at the age of 36.
