“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars
for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul”
Marilyn Monroe first came onto my movie radar
whilst watching John Huston’s 1950 The Asphalt Jungle,
now granted she only had a minor role in the fillm but it
was a good performance and a launch pad for her career.
The 50’s was a whirlwind of endless success for Marilyn,
she was the pin up girl that everyone wanted a piece of,
every A-List actor & director wanted to work with her,
every man wanted to date her – she was and still is
Marilyn Monroe the Sexiest Woman Of All Time.
Marilyn Monroe brought an innocence & beauty to the screen
like no other movie actress – she won a Golden Globe for her
role as Sugar Kane in 1959’s Some Like It Hot and during
her successful spell in the 1950’s made over a dozen endearing
movies showing off her talent and that infectious smile of hers.
In 2010 we visited Marilyn Monroe’s star on the
Hollywood Walk Of Fame and her final resting place
The Westwood Memorial in L.A – i’m sure many reading
this have done the same – just our way of paying our
respect to one of the screen’s brightest stars
