A really interesting thread. Thank you. Interesting to see her post Misfits pre Something's Got To Give in between weight loss. This is one of the only occasions that she didn't seem to be able to smile through the bad times. It's not totally convincing.

Can you guys blame her? I mean, how many dime a dozen public event fundraisers had she done up to that point? All the celebrities get together for dinner and dining. They all break out the alchohol. Yada...yada...yada. And I guarantee the conversation was the same too. Chitter chatter of non importance. I have nothing against these events per say, just that Marilyn was there in 'name' only and people there didn't 'really' care what she thought or said.

It makes me so mad how Marilyn was used. I have read so many accounts of people belittling her intelligence in the midst of company or crowds. I know I sound harsh in reference to these social events, but in Hollywood, you were a commodity and not a person.

I look at these photos and I see Marilyn's mind and attention span in a different sphere. She is obviously distraught and something is wrong. On her face, you can tell she is aging rapidly, her eagerness to smile is becoming less and less.

We have to remember how hard it was for her to be in the public eye 24/7. I think she thought of her life as being Marilyn Monroe and in public the only life worthwhile, no matter how much it hurt her.

And her final unfinished movie entitled "Something's Got To Give". And something sure did give. Her life.

Thanx God we all love her and actually cared about her personal feelings or dreams she might have had. I think she knew her true fans were this. I just wish we could have done more.

She was the ditzy hollywood blonde flamethrower who had no talent. While everyone else were TRUE ACTORS and actually had a craft.

Of course you are forgetting that she didn't actually have to go to this event - unless Lee Strasbourg has a gun pressed into her back in this picture.....

I think you're right on the mark here - the months after Marilyn's divorce from Arthur, with her breakdown and hospitalisation, were among the worst of her life. She really hit rock-bottom. I suspect she attended this event purely as a favour to the Strasbergs. She looks fragile, as if her heart's not really in it.
Zelda Zonk
Right on the mark, Megan. thumbup1.gif And, Fav, you're right, she didn't have to attend the event, but I think she did it for the Strasbergs, as Tara said.
It breaks my heart to see pictures of this event.

Although Marilyn's beauty is evident in these pictures, I also think that she has a vague, faraway look in her eyes in many of them. Despite her obvious attractiveness and the stylishness of her dress and hair, I get the impression that her spirit was tired. Seeing these photos makes me understand how some of the people she encountered felt that they wanted to help her.
MarilynSpice
I agree...she does look like her mind is far away and her spirits are low. Lots of people think MM looks not so well here and I can't say the same. She looks beautiful because beauty belonged to her naturally and she was stunning no mater what but it is true her aura does seem to be very low so maybe in that sense she doesn't look too well.

Lovely, Paul. Never seen the first one. I agree Marilyn looks sad and weary here. With all that was going on at the time - the breakdown, Augusta's death - I'm sure Marilyn only went as a favour to the Strasbergs.
