life is what you stumble into, when you've been expecting much more.

just a gal who collects vintage stuff - marilyn - classic
framed art photos books postcards collectable posters records music and the/my past
useful or not... yet
all things which alight my eye
and help to take away the dreary.

Marilyn Monroe ABC >> C >> Candid

Marilyn Monroe was thought and considered one of the most beautiful and sexy woman of all time. Ironically, Marilyn did not like to wear makeup, bras, or glamorous clothes. Her favorite time was when she was wearing sweatpants, a top, and makeupless. When in public, if she did not want to be recognized, she would wear sunglasses, a big coat, some baggy clothes, and a scarf on her head. Marilyn thought for every person, it was important that they all are told he or she is beautiful. With Marilyn, her beauty comes from within, as well as on the outside. Marilyn once said, "In Hollywood a girl's virtue is much less important than her hairdo. You're judged by how you look, not by what you are." Boy, did Marilyn prove Hollywood wrong.

Marilyn Monroe ABC >> D >> Don't Bother to Knock

Marilyn Monroe starred in Don't Bother to Knock in 1951. She played Nell Forbes, a babysitter who falls for a neighbor, Jed, across the street from the hotel room she's in. As the film goes on, Nell attempts to kill the young girl as well as ties her up and duck tapes her mouth closed. Parents of the young child begin to realize Nell is increasingly disturbed and should not have trusted Nell to watch her child. She lies to Jed to keep him thinking she's a guest and is rich. At the end of the film, Nell admits she was in a mental institution after her suicide attempt and she lost her husband in an accident. This film should have won Marilyn and award, her outstanding performance left chills for many of the viewers watching. This film is an example of Marilyn's impeccable acting performance and should be held in high standards.
