Oh My Goodness!!!! jumpymm.gif


I have just pre-ordered three books from Amazon.... Guess I will be adding a forth! I wonder why there are so many Marilyn books coming out just now? I'm not complaining though - it gives us all something to look forward to in the autumn and winter months!

Love

I haven't yet pre-ordered anything, but I'm really looking forward to Fragments, Cindy De La Hoz's new book, Lois Banner and Mark Anderson's MM: Personal - and now this one! And I finally ordered Jenna Glatzer's Marilyn Monroe Treasures biggrin.gif

Thanks so much for posting those pics Nettie! I was enthralled by the one with the children at the pool because one of the children actually wrote about this in my book! If I remember rightly, she swam up to Marilyn and Marilyn tried to pull her out but almost pulled herself into the pool in the process. Something like that any way! It was extraordinary to see the picture. I can't wait for the book!!!

Love
Michelle

Now you guys have me thinking of this lovely book.
I buy books if they have REALLY RARE beautiful images only. Or great reading material that hasn't been printed millions of times.

Yes Yes |Yes! The cover picture is fantastic! I will def. be buying this one.

Hi all...This book looks awsome!

I want to Pre Order From Amazon, but...what happens on a pre order?...as in, do they take you money straight away or when the book comes in?

So excited about this book...so much so, I have not posted in, well, many months, have not been at all well, but felt compelled to post on this book! jumpymm.gif

Hello bye1.gif

Nice to see you again! Sorry you haven't been well but I hope you are on the mend now.

No, Amazon don't take the money out straight away, nothing comes out until the book is being dispatched. I have four Marilyn books on pre order at the moment - so exciting!

Hope this helps.

Love
Michelle

Hello

The books I have pre-ordered are Marilyn Monroe: The Final Year; Marilyn Monroe: The Personal Archive; Fragments; and the Lois Banner one which I've forgotten the name of but I think it has the word personal in the title! LOL!

There are threads for all of those books on here, so take a look and get pre-ordering! LOL!

I got my book yesterday and read through it already. I don't think there is really a lot that we haven't seen before and I noticed that some of the photos didn't reproduce well. They look very flat and cartoon-like for some reason. Especially the ones of her and JD. But, the letters that Vachon wrote to his wife back home are very well worth the price of admission for this book. He really told it like he saw it. Was scathing of Alan Ladd and Robert Mitchum and said MM was sweet and sort of dumb (in a good way). He seemingly like Shelley Winters a bit more. A nice addition to my collection. Glad I got it.
Stacy
I agree with you. Not a lot of new info. Some of the photos are not as clear and sharp as they could have been. But I've wanted to see the photos for so long. Now I also wonder what photos were left out. But I'm glad I bought it.
meganmarilyn
Thanxs everyone!

Wow, the photos are so beautiful! I love how the sunlight surrounds her. And the photo of her tongue out for the camera, classic Marilyn! throb.gif
Paju
I thought the book wasn't supposed to be released until the end of October! Well, this is better biggrin.gif I love the pictures, thanks so much for posting them. Also it's good to hear what you think of the book.

It seems to be available from Amazon in the USA Chris. Maybe America got a release before the rest of the world.
chris
Yes I've got it too and Wow !!!!

Got this book for Christmas! I love the photos, but Vachon sounds like a real complainer! haha, granted, he was a documentary photographer and so naturally he'd hate the posed Hollywood type stuff - but come on man! This is MM! haha. Nonetheless, the book is lovely.
nathalie
Could someone send more pics, please....I can't find the book.
Paju
I have to get this book sooner or later. Maybe in March along with Lois Banner's new book smile1.gif
Monroestar
I got this book for Christmas. Not read it yet but the photos - WOW!!!! Amazing smile1.gif X
Marloes
I haven't read it either yet, but the pictures are so worth buying this book!
MsMonroeFan
I have this book, I think it it AMAZING!! I love it for the Joe & Marilyn photos (I know that there are the many stories that he abused her but I think he truly did love her)
mare
Thank you everyone for posting pics. Vachon's pics are lovely... the one of MM in the ski lift is amazing and fabulous!

Hmm, this is on my list to buy...
