Happy Birthday ~ Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was one of my favorite actresses. She was born on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. She died on August 5, 1962 at the age of 36. A beautiful actress, model and singer who became a major sex symbol starring in several successful movies during the 50s and early 60s.

Marilyn captivated Hollywood and movie producers. The infamous photo where her pretty white dress flutters up while standing over a street grate is an iconic image everyone adores. Marilyn was starring in the movie "Some Like It Hot" during that time with actors Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.

This is a beautiful video showing a collage of rare black & white photos of Marilyn Monroe on the Santa Monica Beach in 1962.


  1. I remember being on vacation with my parents and seeing the headlines in the newspaper about her death.
