Description

A tribute to Marilyn... Song by Joe Henry. "I know people who say 'Hollywood broke her heart,' and all that, but I don't believe it. She was very observant and tough minded and appealing, but she adored and trusted the wrong people. She was very courageous - you know the book Twelve Against the Gods? Marilyn was like that, she had to challenge the gods at every turn." --- George Cukor "Her quality when photographed is almost of a supernatural beauty." --- Lee Strasberg "Nobody discovered her, she earned her own way to stardom." --- Darryl Zanuck "Marilyn played the best game with the worst hand of anybody I know." --- Edward Wagenknecht, author "It may sound peculiar to say so, because she is no longer with us, but we were very close. Once when we were doing that picture (How To Marry A Millionaire,1953) together, I got a call on the set: my younger daughter had had a fall. I ran home and the one person to call was Marilyn. She did an awful lot to boost things up for movies when everything was at a low state; there'll never be anyone like her for looks, for attitude, for all of it." --- Betty Grable
