Marilyn Monroe is perhaps the most prominent pop culture icon ever, her presence and fashion transcending the movies that she starred in. But she remains an enigma that filmmakers have become obsessed with dissecting — there have been no less than 12 feature films about her, and countless other TV specials and movies that have tried to get to the bottom of the iridescent star and her tragic early death.
Young and beautiful she will always remain, and that’s what makes her a great subject — even when the subject is as morbid as the year leading up to her death. A new TV miniseries on Marilyn Monroe is being developed to tackle exactly that, based on the novel Marilyn 1962.
