She was beautiful, voluptuous, sexy, and one of the hottest actresses in the 1950’s. With her appearing in 23 films in the 1950’s, Marilyn soon became one of the, if not the most celebrated actresses of all time. It wasn’t due to her outstanding acting ability, which in all honesty wasn’t that bad at all, but due to her personality and sex symbol image.
She made apperances in All About Eve in 1950, As Young as You Feel in 1951, Don’t Bother to Knock and Monkey Business in 1952; Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and How to Marry a Millionaire in 1953; Then came the big roles that catapulted her even further upward as well as into a downward spiral, The Seven Year Itch, Some Like it Hot and Bus Stop.
Unfortunately she became an even bigger star and legend due to her untimely death after filming what some say was her greatest role of her career, matched with the greatest leading man of all time, Clark Gable in The Misfits.
