The time: The 1950’s. The place: Hollywood.
Passionate, thoughtful and filled with haunting memories, THE LEGEND OF MARILYN MONROE continues the unforgettable controversy of the most glamorous silver screen star the world has ever seen.
For the first time on DVD, Academy Award winning producer, David. L. Wolper takes a close and intimate look at the personal life of our world’s most famous Hollywood goddess. THE LEGEND OF MARILYN MONROE contains never-before-seen-interviews, pictures and film footage from those who knew her best. Mentors, lovers and friends reveal their secrets and the true Marilyn including her triumphs, failures and ultimate demise.
When asked what makes this film so unique, Mr. Wolper said, “In a dramatic way, as we are telling the story, you begin to feel the woman; a young girl who had no home.” He went on to say, “Marilyn Monroe was a very delicate individual. She was dependent on people all her life.”
Now 40 years on from her tragic death in 1962, Marilyn is still as much an icon today as she has ever been. This one of a kind film, with an updated featurette from David L. Wolper (LA Confidential, ‘Roots’, Murder In The First) and writer director Terry Sanders, THE LEGEND OF MARILYN MONROE, is the real and true story behind Marilyn’s rise to stardom.
