    Cindy De La Hoz - All books by this author

    F ifty years after her untimely death, Marilyn Monroe continues to attract attention as an ongoing focus of interest and controversy. In this brand-new book, film historian Cindy De La Hoz gives Marilyn’s countless fans a dramatic biography, and supplements it with 20 rare facsimile documents that mark important events in the actress’s life. The facsimiles are separate items that can be removed from the book. The star’s biography begins with the birth of Norma Jeane Mortensen in 1926, then describes her unstable family background, her childhood spent in an orphanage and foster homes, her early career as a photographer’s model, her 1946 contract with Twentieth Century-Fox, her rise to movie stardom, and her important films, including Some Like It Hot and The Misfits. Also described are Marilyn’s several marriages, her emotional troubles, and her sudden, mysterious death on August 5, 1962. Among the facsimile documents are—

    • Marilyn Monroe’s personal script for her film, Niagara
    • Airline tickets for Aug. 27, 1950, the day Marilyn and a companion traveled to a hospital where she checked in for treatment, following a nervous breakdown
    • The contact sheet for Marilyn’s last modeling shoot
    • A handwritten note written by Marilyn to Joe DiMaggio
    • The divorce certificate that ended her marriage to DiMaggio. . . and more
    Marilyn Monroe: The Personal Archives uncovers the private life and lays bare the conflicting dreams and emotions of one of the twentieth century’s most memorable film stars. Marilyn Monroe’s legendary story is supplemented with approximately 170 stunning photos in color and black and white.
