Marilyn Monroe

2010-05-11

EXCEPT FOR MAYBE ELVIS, NO OTHER POP icon has exercised such sway over the American imagination as Marilyn Monroe, both for how she lived and how she died.  ' Monroe Marilyn ' such a simple phrase, yet she was the Last Star; she flamed out at the height of her incandescence.  Marilyn epitomized both sides of the American Dream:  her dumb-blond persona embodied the last bloom of prefeminist "innocence"; her suicide, all that's rotten about the culture of celebrity - and possibly worse.  A footnote to the assassination of J.F.K.? (Could she have been a Kennedy) Thirty years after her death, the suspicions surrounding it are stronger than ever.  Still, there is Marilyn, caught here by Cecil Beaton in a never-before-published photo at the Waldorf Astoria in 1956.
