There's a million books on Marilyn, and most are still very popular. Her calendars, this year included, are among our best sellers. And we're very pleased with this small but nifty new book, bargain-priced for any budget. This is a brief history of Marilyn's short life, handsomely accompanied by fine full-page photos from her high school days to her final film. We like the wide selection, particularly the images of her early in her career.
She worked with some of the best directors of her day and pushed herself to excel in comedic dramatic and musical roles. Marilyn may have played the dumb blonde but that was just one more role, nicely covered here. Filled with outstanding public and private photographs. We like it.
This is a small square volume filled with full-page photos, from the same series as Pin Up Girls, Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren.
