The myth of Marilyn: Marilyn Monroe biography

Fifty years ago, on August 5, 1962,  Marilyn Monroe's life came to a tragic end. Today, her legend and movie star appeal live on (who can sing 'Happy Birthday' without adding "Mr. President" in your head?).

 My Week With Marilyn's box office success, and the growing popularity of NBC's Smash make it clear that we're all still enamored by the girl formerly known as Norma Jean. 

In honor of the 50th anniversary of her death, we take a look back at her all too short life filled with lovers, style, diamonds, pizzaz, and more than her fair share of sadness.

Actress, singer, model, sex symbol… Marilyn Monroe was all these things. But was there more her than that?
