Was there ever anyone else like Marilyn?  It's nearly 50 years since her untimely death and no one has been able to step into her shoes.  While her career, indeed her life, was marked by personal problems, and a reputation for being unreliable and difficult to work with, she is still responsible for such enduring favorites as Some Like it Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and The Seven Year Itch.

Included with this book is a CD of songs that accompany the story of Marilyn's life. Beautifully illustrated by classic photography.
