Reviews

"I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt . . . She was an unusual woman, a little ahead of her times. And she didn't know it." -Ella Fitzgerald

"Marilyn was a sensitive, misunderstood person, much more perceptive than was generally assumed. She had been beaten down, but had a strong emotional intelligence-a keen intuition for the feelings of others, the most refined type of intelligence." -Marlon Brando

"The minute that camera turned on her, she became this incredible creature. . . She was just herself, and she was absolutely dazzling as herself." -Lauren Bacall
