Biographic Marilyn

Biographic Marilyn

Most people know that Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962) was a Hollywood icon, and at one time the most famous movie star on the planet. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that she lived in 42 different homes; that she loved Abraham Lincoln with a passion; that she was the first choice for the role of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s; and that her absences while filming Let’s Make Love added 28 days to the shooting time and $1 million to the budget.

Biographic: Marilyn presents an instant impression of her life, work and legacy, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the actor behind the movies.
