Wootton Talks Musical Movie Legends: MARILYN MONROE: Enduring Pop-icon All Ages
One of the most famous actresses of her time and an enduring icon in popular culture whose 1950s stardom and celebrity power made her one the most photographed persons of the 20th century, chanteuse and musical star Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962) was known for playing comic ‘blonde bombshell’ characters in such legendary films as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Seven Year Itch (one of her biggest box office successes) and her Golden Globe-winning turn in the all-time classic Some Like it Hot.
Wootton explores the legacy of Monroe, whose tragically short life, conflicted public image, troubled private life and struggle for professional respect all contribute to the endless fascination with this doomed legend.
