Product description

Review

'What movie star besides Marilyn Monroe, the quintessence of white, feminine sex appeal, could credibly be the focus of a lavish, 350-page encyclopedia? The question is rhetorical, especially when Marilyn's rags-to-riches career and embodiment of the smiling-on-the-outside, crying-on-the-inside celebrity are factored in ... A fan could get lost for days in Victor's achievement' --Booklist

'This sumptuously illustrated resource will satisfy anyone's itch to learn about the screen's great sex goddess' --People

About the Author

Adam Victor first encountered Marilyn Monroe at the age of 12, when he first saw her in the Marx Brothers' Love Happy. He is a successful writer and translator. His other books include The Elvis Encyclopedia, also published by Duckworth.

I am the biggest Monroe fan and found this to be one of the best in my collection, it gives an in depth review of all of her films and hundreds of quotes from co-workers, friends and fans. It has an uncountable number of pictures and a biography too. It is easy to read and a must for any Marilyn fan.

A present for my wife. Although an A to Z book, she read every page and said she likes the book.
