While working together these 6 weeks in 1962 Marilyn said to photographer and journalist George Barris, "Don't
believe anything you read about me except this story."
From Peter Snyder
First I want to start this off with a question that I think I know the answer to. Has anyone looked better at the beach than Marilyn Monroe? Perhaps not, maybe Sophia Loren and perhaps someone like Mariah Carey today. That alone should give you a great idea of the pure attractiveness, beauty and sex appeal of a Marilyn Monroe.
All sexy attractive women look great at the beach. It is a big motivator for guys to go to the beach to see great looking women there. And then you throw in Marilyn Monroe at the beach and its liking checking out a goddess or angel that was sent from above, like from God or someone. To show everyone who is still alive what they are missing upstairs. That is just one example of what Marilyn Monroe brought to millions of people. Fans, admirers, people who were simply just interested in her.
And just another example of how her dying at the age of thirty-six in 1962 is such a historic tragedy. Very similar to Jayne Mansfield dying at thirty-four in 1967. Because of everything that we've missed from not seeing these women, first grow up mentally, but also grow older.
