Product Description

Marilyn Monroe's status as the greatest icon of the twentieth century is rarely disputed, but the real Marilyn in many ways has remained a mystery. Her life has been pondered by everyone from film scholars and historians to novelists and pop culture mavens, creating endless pages of biography, analysis, adoration, invective, and speculationever since her mysterious death in August 1962.

With Adam Victor's astute research and crisp writing, as well as hundreds of photographs (including shots by top photographers Eve Arnold, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Milton Greene, among others), the facts of Marilyn's amazing life are represented in full and, of course, there is complete information on Marilyn's lovers, songs, and films, including credit listings. The Marilyn Encyclopedia is the second-to-none resource on Marilyn Monroe.

Praise for The Marilyn Encyclopedia: "This sumptuously illustrated resource will satisfy anyone’s itch to learn about the screen’s great sex goddess." –People

"From artichokes to hair color, it seems nothing has been left out of this comprehensive encyclopedia… Victor simply presents the fact and the folklore that make up the Marilyn mystique, including gossip, anecdote, andconspiracy theories." –Library Journal
