"Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson) was an American film actress, singer, model and entertainer. Her film career began in 1947 with small roles to attract the attention of audiences and critics in a minor role in the cult film "Everything about Eve," with Beta Davis in the lead. Three years later, she starred in the love drama "Niagara." Although her films were mostly commercial, but not critical, Monroe was one of the greatest film stars of the 1950s.
She is best known for her roles in comedies "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1953), “How to Marry a Millionaire” (1953) and “The Seven Year Itch” (1955). Limited by typecasting, Monroe studied at the Actors Studio to broaden her range. Her dramatic performance in Bus Stop (1956) was hailed by critics and garnered a Golden Globe nomination. Her production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, released “The Prince and the Showgirl” (1957), for which she received a BAFTA Award nomination and won a David di Donatello award. She received a Golden Globe Award for her performance in “Some Like It Hot” (1959). Monroe's last completed film was The Misfits (1961), co-starring Clark Gable with the screenplay by her then-husband, Arthur Miller.
