The Birth of Marilyn Summary

The Birth of Marilyn: The Lost Photos of Norma Jean by Joseph Jasgur

Marilyn Monroe was born in 1946 at the age of 19. As Norma Jean Dougherty, she had come to Hollywood dreaming of being a movie star, ready to leave her name and husband behind her. Her modelling agency asked a successful young photographer, Joseph Jasgur, to take some photographs that would impress the big casting director. The assignment worked; by autumn she had a film contract in her pocket and a new name - Marilyn Monroe. For more than 40 years these photographs were locked away and remained, with rare exceptions, unpublished.
