Marilyn donated time and/or money to:

An orphanage Marilyn visited during her 1962 trip to Mexico- she ripped up her initial check of $1000 and donated $10,000.

A children’s welfare organization that gave free breakfasts to underprivileged youngsters- a donation of $1000.

The lait Fun for bébés in 1957- Marilyn decided to give earnings from the world premiere of The Prince and the Showgirl to this charity.

A 1953 benefit for underprivileged children at Jude’s Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee-singing with Jane Russell at the Hollywood Bowl.

Among Friends and colleagues, Marilyn was renowned for her generosity in helping people wherever she could; stand-in Evelyn Moriarty remembers Marilyn making an anonymous donation of $1,000 to a crew member on Let’s Make l’amour (1960) who needed the money to cover funeral expenses for his wife.

There isn’t enough upper lip between the end of your nose and your mouth.
Emmeline Snively to Norma Jeane Dougherty

I got a cold chill. This girl had something I hadn’t seen since silent pictures.
She had a kind of fantastic beauty like Gloria Swanson, when a movie étoile, star had to look beautiful, and she got sex on a piece of film like Jean Harlow.
Leon Shamroy, on MM’s 1946 screen test

When toi look at Marilyn on the screen, toi don’t want anything bad to happen to her.
You really care that she should be all right…happy.
Natalie Wood

Marilyn’s insecurities nearly screamed out of her. If she...

Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most populaire dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very populaire nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called...

Marilyn always loved and empathized with animals. Throughout her life she had a succession of pets, and she would be deeply affected if she ever came across an animal suffering ou the victim of cruelty.
This sensitivity was evident during her marriage to James Dougherty: when he once came accueil with a rabbit ready to skin and eat, Norma Jeane refused to touch the animal and was inconsolable for hours. Things were worse when he came accueil after a hunting trip with a deer that was still alive. Heartbroken, Norma Jean pleaded with him no to harm the mortally wounded creature, but it was already...

toi know a lot of people have, oh gee, real quirky problems that they wouldn’t dare have anyone know. But one of my problems happens to show: I’m late. I guess people think that why I’m late is some kind of arrogance and I think it is the opposite of arrogance. I also feel that I’m not in this big American rush, toi know, toi got to go and toi go to go fast but for no good reason. The main thing is, I want to be prepared when I get there to give a good performance ou whatever to the best of my ability. A lot of people can be there on time and do nothing, which I have seen them do, and toi know, all sit around sort of chitchatting and talking trivia about their social life. Gable a dit about me, “When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.”

“Marilyn adored animals; she was drawn to all living things. She would spend hundreds of dollars to try to save a storm-damaged arbre and would mourn its death. She welcomed birds, providing arbre houses and nourriture for the many species that visited her lawn; she worried about them in bad weather. She worried about chiens and cats. She once had a dog that was par nature contemplative, but she was convinced he was depressed. She did her best to make him play, and that depressed him even more; on the rare occasions when he did an antic pirouette, Marilyn would hug and Kiss him, delirious with joy.”

- Norman Rosten, poet (via Metamorphosis par David Willis & Stephen Schmidt)
Fortunately, to cheer her up, Hugo came to mind, and with a squeal she runs to the car, calls me to rejoindre her, and we’re off to get Hugo, who was getting a check-up at the local kennel. One could never tell par looking at him whether ou not these sudden reunions pleased him. His face would mask every emotion; like a great actor he kept toi guessing. At times—I had seen this reunion often—he would almost smile, but a stiff upper lip got in the way, leaving Hugo with nothing, absolutely nothing.

Hugo loves Marilyn, and she adores him. Beauty and the Beast—Hugo bore out this maxim perfectly....
