Nearly 60 years after her death Marilyn Monroe remains an American cultural icon. Biographers have tried to define the mystery of her allure. She is a study in contrasts: beautiful and sexy yet sweet and vulnerable, sensitive and insecure. Offscreen she was a humanitarian, an early supporter of civil rights, and a lover of books. Though her life was short and tragic, her star still shines brightly. This visual presentation will tell her story in her own words, through her movies and the recollections of those who knew her.
