I´m going to tell you about Marilyn’s whole life. From when she was born until her death in 1962. I really don´t know why I chose just Marilyn Monroe, it could have been anyone. I just surfed around on the Internet and looked on my homepage if I had anything interesting to write about, which I didn´t. So I visited my sister’s homepage, were she has a lot of old music artists, movie stars and things like that. It was then I discovered her page about Marilyn Monroe and I got curious. I have heard a lot about Marilyn Monroe and so I decided to do my essay about her.


Marilyn is well known today mostly because she was so beautiful, but she also was a good actress. She made 30 films and left one unfinished. She lived the life that most people dream about, but Marilyn was really depressed. Maybe because non of her marriages lasted forever, maybe because everyone saw her as a sex symbol. That she was so depressed maybe lead to her death, if she took her life. Maybe she got murdered, and why I don´t know. Why her life ended is still a mystery.


Norma Jean Baker, or Marilyn Monroe which is the name she is more known under, was born in the 1st of June 1926 in Los Angeles. She was born under the name Norma Jean Mortensen but she got baptised later to Norma Jean Baker, because the identity of her father was unknown.

Norma Jean’s mother Gladys Baker had psychological problems that forced Norma Jean to live at different foster homes and orphanages. Luckily she could move in with the family friend Grace McKee Goddard in 1937. Unfortunately they had to move in 1942 to the East Coast and couldn’t afford to take Norma Jean with them. She got an ultimatum; get back to the orphanages or get married. Norma Jean got married on June the same year with her neighbour Jimmy Dougherty, whom she had been dating for six months. Norma Jean and Jimmy lived happily until 1944 when he joined the Merchant Marines and got send away to the South Pacific. When Jimmy had left, Norma Jean took a job at the Radio Plane Munitions and that became a turning point in her life. Some couples of months later the photographer David Conover saw her while he was taking photos of some women. He got astonished and thought that he had found a photographer’s dream. David started to give her modelling jobs and within two years she was a reputable model. Norma Jean began to study the work of some of the most popular actresses. She also started to join drama classes and began to dream about fame. Unfortunately Jimmy returned in 1946 and Norma Jean had to choose between her carrier and her husband. Norma Jean, which had big dreams, divorced Jimmy in June the same year. After that she signed her fist contract, which was with Twentieth Century Fox. She also dyed her hair to blonde and changed her name. She borrowed her grandmother’s last name and become Marilyn Monroe. After that she got one film roll after another. Everything went just fine for her and 1953 the magazine Photoplay voted her for the Best New actress of the year.

1954 Marilyn married Joe DiMaggio, a baseball superstar. That marriage lasted only nine months because Marilyn’s fame and sexual image haunted the marriage. They divorced but stayed close friends.

In 1955 Marilyn wanted to show the world that she really was a good actress and skipped her shallow image. She started with a break from Hollywood and decided to move to New York City and study at the Actor’s Studio. One year later she started Marilyn Monroe Productions were two of Marilyn’s movies were produced, “Bus Stop” and “The prince and the Showgirl”.

In 1956 it was time for Marilyn to get married again, this time with the playwrighter Arthur Miller. He wrote the role Roslyn Taber in The Misfits especially for Marilyn while they were married. Like all Marilyn’s other marriages this one ended quickly. On the 20th of January 1961 Marilyn and Arthur got divorced.

Everything looked to turn out fine for Marilyn but in the early morning of the 5th of August 1962 she died in her sleep. Some says that it was a murder, some that it was a suicide, but the whole world got surprised. Three days later Marilyn got buried at Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. After Marilyn’s death Elton John recorded “Candle in the wind” to celebrate her memory.


I think that Marilyn lived the life that most people dream about. She was a good actress and she had found love, unfortunately she put the love aside to become the big star she always wanted to be. I think that that was the reason she took her life, and yes, I believe that she took her life. She was so unhappy when she had made it as a big superstar. She didn´t have any one that really loved her after she had ...
