There is no intention of idolizing Ms. Monroe here by presenting her contributuion to the 50's and
60's. In fact, all personalities, women, men, etc. are presented for your pleasure only to take you back to that simple
and enduring time of the past.
No site of 50's and 60's content would be complete without Marilyn Monroe. She was the personification of beauty,
of sexiness. Her appeal was world-wide, her image plastered on every billboard, magazine and newspaper of the day. She
was not a mere glamorous creature that could melt your heart with a casual glance, she was much more, she was royality....she
was the most loved movie star of her time and is still the inspiration and benchmark of most who came after.
Her tragic death in August 1962 is still an unsolved mystery. There remains doubt of the reports of her suicide.
Many firmly beleive that she was actually murdered, caught up in the power struggles of politicians of the day. We may
never know the real story, but one thing remains unshaken, Marilyn Monroe was then as she is now, a true American icon.
Rest in Peace Norma Jean!
