I watched it yesterday. It was really interesting to hear Emmeline Sniveny talk about young Marilyn and modelling. My favorite part has to be Clifford Odets and the way he talks about Marilyn. He's pretty much looking into the future and predicting what's going to happen.

It's interesting to hear Marilyn described as a California blonde: darker in the winter then lighter with the sun in the summer. I've always read people trumpeting the fact that she was a brunette originally, which anyway is nonsense if you see the photographs of her as a child when she was very blonde.
