I know, obvious, right?
But, sometimes you just need to state it.
We all know she got kind of a bum rap.
She got labeled the bombshell (and, let’s be fair–she played the role) and, when she wanted to bust out of it, she really couldn’t.
I always just want to give her a big hug when I see her on screen.
Just a big hug and a whisper in her ear to run in the opposite direction that she was headed in.
I wish her stage work was available to see. Is it? Am I missing something?
Ohhhh, how wonderful it would be to see that.
Everything I’ve read and heard points to the fact that she gave her best performances on stage, in classes.
Regardless, she’s beautiful. I always prefer the un-made-up Marilyn. The fresh faced Marilyn. The Marilyn that wasn’t being Marilyn. The peek at Norma.
