MARILYN MONROE

“Bye Bye Baby”


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

Marilyn Monroe was born 1 June 1926 - baptized Norma Jeane Baker. She was an actress and a singer as well as a model and sex symbol.

Monroe began her career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early roles were minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve (both 1950) were well received. She was praised for her comedic ability in such films as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire and The Seven Year Itch, and became one of Hollywood's most popular and glamorous performers.

The typecasting of Monroe's "dumb blonde" persona limited her career prospects, so she broadened her range. She studied at the Actors Studio and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions. Her dramatic performance in William Inge's Bus Stop was hailed by critics, and she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Some Like it Hot.

In many of her movies she performs as a singer, and her songs have been released on numerous compilation albums Source: Wikipedia etc.
