Greg made another announcement about Some Like It Hot German newsletter. (Recently Greg was made an honorary member of this wonderful magazine.)
Marilyn Remembered member Valerie Weich is the clubs liaison and keeps the German newsletter abreast of the latest meetings. This month's newsletter issue featured many wonderful articles including a subjective article titled "THE HALL OF SHAME, THE HALL OF FAME" which covered people who have kept Marilyn's Memory alive with honor and those who haven't. Greg Schreiner's name was mentioned as one who keeps Marilyn Monroe's memory alive with honor.

(FYI: Parking at the chapel is restricted this year due to construction but you may park outside the chapel at any number of parking lots located nearby.)

Greg commented on the play After The Fall that the club saw last month. Greg noted that the play was wonderful but difficult to watch, as it is an intense portrait of Arthur Miller's life with Marilyn. Greg complimented the actress that played Maggie, saying she brought depth to her character when most actresses would have brought only a caricature of the image of Marilyn Monroe. Overall the play was rewarding to watch. (More information on the play please CLICK HERE)

After we covered the meeting notes we were treated to a wonderful 'Grade A' French documentary called MARILYN MONROE: INVESTIGATION INTO A SUSPECT. The film was about an hour in length and was filled with never before seen interviews from important people in Marilyn's life. The documentary covered the final day of Marilyn's life and explored every theory into Marilyn's death. Riveting and informational, this documentary was a notch above most and was well received by The Marilyn Remembered Fan Club!
