1) Marilyn: Unseen Archives by Marie Clayton.
2) Some Like It Hot
3) A poster of her in her gold lame gown =)
4) I don't know, she's somehow always been around on books and bags and whatnot. One of the classic skirt pictures or the Warhol picture I would have thought. Something iconic like that.
5) Probably Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend, but, like with the picture, I may have heard something else. I knew her face and her voice long before I knew who she really was.

Ah, fun!

(2) First MM movie you saw? -- Niagara.

(3) First MM item you bought? -- Niagara, the movie, it is still one of my favorites.

(4) First MM picture you saw? -- See photo posted below, it is also the cover of the book by Norman Mailer.

(5) First MM song you heard? -- I believe it was "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend", because it is so popular, who hasn't heard it!

1)First MM book you read? Conversations With Marilyn, which my dad bought for me one summer in Ireland. I didn't know many people there and reading that book made me feel less lonely. Closely followed by Norma Jean (Guiles) and MM: A Life On Film (Kobal), bought with my pocket money!

2)First MM movie you saw? Either Bus Stop or SLIH. I didn't have a TV when I was growing up, so it would have been in someone else's house - which made it more exciting.

3)First MM item you bought? 2 postcards - this would have been in 1985, when I was 13. One by DeDienes, a head shot from Tobey Beach. The other a publicity shot from All About Eve. They were both sepia-toned and just lovely. I wish I still had them now!

4)First MM picture you saw? Either Stern's head and shoulders shot, or Marilyn in the gold dress. These are the images that I was aware of before I was a fan.

5)First MM song you heard? I'm not sure, maybe I Wanna Be Loved By You.
