Marilyn: Behind the Icon – Exclusive Blog Series by Author Gary Vitacco-Robles

Marilyn: Behind the Icon Blog Series

I am so happy to announce that, in celebration of Marilyn Monroe’s birthday tomorrow, June 1, CMH will be launching an exclusive Marilyn: Behind the Icon blog series, penned by author Gary Vitacco-Robles. The series will run through August 5, which is the anniversary of Monroe’s death.

Gary’s blog series will explore Monroe’s memorable and hidden films and performances. From her portrayal of a psychotic babysitter in Don’t Bother to Knock to her triumphant, Golden Globe Award-winning performance in Some Like It Hot, Gary will help us deconstruct what contributed to Monroe’s enduring appeal.

We’ll be posting Gary’s first article about Niagara, tomorrow morning, so stay tuned 🙂

Last, but not least — A Big Thank You to Gary for creating this series for us!

    Great timing for June!

  2. Thanks! I am thrilled to explore Marilyn’s performances. Her annotated scripts reveal the depth of her preparation & conceptualization of roles. Marilyn made it look effortless, but we now know it was painstaking. I hope you share your reaction to the series.
