Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962), born Norma Jeane Mortenson, but baptized Norma Jeane
Baker, was an American actress, singer and beauty. After spending much of her childhood in foster homes,
Monroe began a career as a beauty, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early film appearances were
minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve (both 1950) were critically acclaimed.
In a few years, Monroe reached stardom and was cast as the leading lady in such films as Gentlemen Prefer
Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Seven Year Itch, and Some Like It Hot.
The typecasting of Monroe's "dumb blonde" persona limited her career prospects, so she broadened her
range. She studied at the Actors Studio and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions. Her dramatic performance in
Bus Stop was hailed by critics, and she won a Golden Globe Award for Some Like it Hot.
The final years of Monroe's life were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for being
unreliable and difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates,
have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a "probable suicide," the possibility
of an accidental overdose, as well as the possibility of homicide, have not been ruled out. In 1999,
Monroe was ranked as the sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.
In the years and decades following her death, Monroe has often been cited as a pop and cultural icon.
