It is one of the most important docus, made in 1966.
Many following docus take interview footage from that one.
There is a extended version of the DVD, you should try to get that one!

Thanks so much Harald! I haven't found the extended version. The DVD I would like to buy is from 2001. Would it be the same as the documentary of 1966? I hope so! banana.gif

It is an excellent documentary, narrated by John Huston, featuring rare interviews with people like the Bolenders, Marilyn's first foster parents, who are now long gone.

I saw it on TV but am hoping to buy a copy too. I think the 2001 copy you refer to is the extended version, it includes not just the documentary but a featurette on the making of, which is quite interesting. The more recent version is just under an hour long, so I assume it does not have these extra features.

Ou, I'd love to have the extended version! I have the original one and I really enjoyed it. It also has a little interview with the Strasbergs, I believe. I'd say go for it, Marloes! biggrin.gif

My sweet sweet boyfriend bought me the DVD a couple of days ago. I haven't seen all yet, but as far as I have seen, it's great. The interviews with the Bolenders and Jimmy Dougherty are so interessting and the footage of Marilyn is awesome! A real recommendation!

Thanks for all the help guys!

What 'crap' they do say in these documentaries. But I love the footage anyway. I like looking in her house.

I just watched this documentary. I love it for the footage: the interviews with the Bolenders, Norma Jeane's old teacher, Jim Dougherty etc. Even our cat, Obi, watched the documentary with me. Seriously: when Marilyn first appeared he couldn't take his eyes off the television! laugh.gif
