Her sweet little wedding dress.
marilyn
Nettie i don't think the dress is the original wedding dress because in the book of berniece and mona rae i've read that marilyn gave the dress to mona rae and that mona rae made a short dress of it and she wore it to her prom night.
So i don't think that this dress is real.
Joan Newman
Marilyn, that would explain why the dress looks shorter in my pictures. Maybe it is that dress "after" she gave it to Mona Rae? I don't even remember where I got these pictures from. But it does look like the dress. Thank you honey.

Just wondering, does anyone here believe the claims JD made: that he and M were in love and would have lived happily ever after had dreams of stardom not lured her away. M always maintained theirs was a marriage of convenience engineered by Grace Goddard. In an interview for A&E Network, he admitted that his mother, having been approached by Goddard, asked him if he'd be willing to marry Norma Jeane to prevent her from being sent to an orphanage. He sold signed copies of his books on his website.

In Marilyn's Man, he claimed he was her Svengali, and invented "Marilyn Monroe"; Fox forced her to divorce him; and he was her true love. His own actions did not support his claims. M was reportedly furious when he gave an interview to Photoplay in 1953, claiming that she threatened to jump off the Santa Monica Pier if he ever left her. He later appeared as a contestant on To Tell the Truth as "Marilyn Monroe's real first husband". When informed of her death, the New York Times reported he said "I'm sorry" and continued his patrol; he did not attend her funeral.

The 1999 Christie's auction of M's estate revealed that, while she had kept items from her marriages to DiMaggio and Miller, she kept none from Dougherty.

Fact is, IMHO, if his first wife didn't become you-know-who, he wouldn't have been a blip on the radar! coolio.gif

432 S. Bentley Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90049.

OMG words cannot describe how much I love these. I often wonder if Norma Jeane had stayed married to Jim, would her life have turned out to be better, and by that I mean made her happier...we would have been deprived of her, but maybe she would have lived a full life, maybe even had the children she so badly wanted...from what I have read about him, it seems he treated her well and they were content together for awhile...

Useless speculating I guess. Just when I see these pics it makes me heart break a little for them both...

Not Jim with her. Circa December 1946, at The Casino Gardens in Santa Monica, CA. Date with Navy flier, Len Cormier. Norma Jeane & Jim's divorce was finalized on September 13, 1946.

I agree with you Melissa! I wonder late at night thinking "what if?". But everything happens for a reason. We may not know why, but it was....

A Marilyn Monroe letter from Len Cormier
Autograph Letter Signed ("Len")San Francisco (though his letter states he is in Sydney, Australia), May 26, 1947, to Marilyn Monroe, on "SkyMail" stationery.
In his letter from training camp, he writes, "I'll have to admit that I don't leave your picture out all the time, since nobody would get any work done if it were." He relays his experiences with flight operations and traveling, and ends his letter with a thoughtful message to his career-oriented friend: "I've still got my fingers crossed, hoping that all the breaks in the world come to you."

P.S. I like comparing the old pictures with the new. I would love to go visit this house myself. throb.gif
