Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Born in Hollywood, albeit on the wrong side of the tracks, the young Marilyn Monroe had everything stacked against her. Yet she struggled against the adversity and became the most popular actress in the world. After the film Niagara, the public loved her and followed her every move—two failed marriages, repeated miscarriages, battles with Twentieth Century Fox, classic films The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot, right up to the horrible, tragic end. As well as an introductory essay, in this book each of Marilyn's films is reviewed and analyzed. Not only that, but there's a handy reference section for further study of this film legend.
