A bit late, but couldn't let the day just pass by. Marilyn Monroe would be 91 today if she were living.

Many of us keep a small place in our hearts for Marilyn Monroe. Dead these many years, but, come calendar time each year, there she is, outselling many more modern stars.

What made her different was her sheer vulnerability. It shows quite clearly in many photos taken of her. Most of her films are quite forgettable now, except for her presence.

The great film director Billy Wilder said he had only ever seen two females in movies who had such impact on film. One was Clara Bow, and the other Marilyn.

Back in the early seventies I met these girls from out of town who absolutely adored her.

They knew her address and where she was buried.

Past midnight one evening/morning they begged me to drive by her last house which was kind of eerie at that hour.

But wait...there's more!

They wanted to go to her cemetery a little past 2 am!

So that we did, and saw some flowers there and thought they were maybe from Joe DiMaggio.



Her house was sold recently (over asking price of course), here's the Zillow listing:

I remember reading an article about her in which she said she could turn on and off, the Marilyn Monroe thing. She looked pretty ordinary but then she'd put on make up and the right clothing, get in that bubbly over the top mood and get that look on her and--voom! All of a sudden she would be Marilyn Monroe. It was something she did.

But if you saw her on the street, just walking along, not putting on the act, she appeared like an ordinary person.
