With one of the most extensive and continuously growing Marilyn collections on display, the legend lives on year-round at The Hollywood Museum! Here you can see personal items and photographs from Marilyn’s childhood through to the end of her life and get a glimpse into the lives and personalities of Norma Jean and Marilyn Monroe. “This Museum is considered the perfect home for this exhibit since it is actually here where the legendary Max Factor originally designed Marilyn’s on-screen hair and coloring. When you walk into the ‘FOR BLONDES ONLY ROOM,’ you feel Marilyn Monroe’s presence.” - Donelle Dadigan, President and Founder of The Hollywood Museum

Here is some useless information for everyone who believes in irony... Hugh Hefner owes his career/wealth to Marilyn Monroe. The very first issue of Playboy, released in 1955 featured photos of her, naked, which he bought from a photographer who sold them, next to nothing. 5years before Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe!! Hef now owns the crypt next to her!!! If only I could get my hands on the original playboy, $6800 today, in 1955 it was valued at 50 cents!! This is why I love her, even in death she has the world at her feet
Did Norma Jean kill Marilyn? Just finished reading the life of Marilyn Monroe

(WARNING: Rant/ interesting facts about Marilyn Monroe) I hate it when people are absolutely in love with a famous person JUST because they do something that you do or that you like. But that's like.. The ONLY thing you like about them. Most popularly Marilyn Monroe.. Yeah she's a sex symbol woo, yeah how fun miss like 12 year old little girl. I bet you didn't even know that she was an actress, or that she's had illegally had so many abortions (from what I have heard it was 12) that she was no longer able to keep a child after that, so every child she was pregnant with she had miscarried, I bet you didn't know that supposedly she had such dry skin before she put on her foundation she had to put Vaseline on her skin, bet you didn't know that she spent most of her time in various foster homes as a kid but yet she was never an orphan, also her nick name was Norma Jean, the Human Stringbean in high school, bet you didn't know that according to her first husband James Dougherty, she had such a passion and lov ...

Okay, Ready? My pick is Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn Monroe never got anywhere by being Norma Jean.
As a woman I Homage Marylin Monroe ... I admire women like Marilyn Monroe. For recognition of their sensitivity and female talent. High sense of humor ... I'm a little Norma Jean!! Deise beautiful ... as the same way his friend James Dean. They were a mark of rebel without cause! I think Marylin was pure in all your life. She was very sexy and I think Marylin in the end of her life wished to be RESPECTED and she wasn't as woman so beautiful and talented. Deise from Brazil!!!
Marilyn Monroe's birth name is Norma Jean Mortensen. i dont even know why im reading all these facts im bored leave me alone
I suppose today was the very first time I've listened/paid attention to the lyrics of "Candle in the Wind" by Elton John...not much of a music person, sorry. Had I been asked, I would have said the song was about no one in particular, then re-worked after the accident of Diana, Princess of Wales. But alas...to my great sadness, it is about Norma Jean Baker...aka Marilyn Monroe, as I'm sure 99.9% of you knew, but I was unaware of. Now I feel dumb. But not as dumb as she was. Now I don't like the song anymore. Blah. P.S. If you like Marilyn Monroe, you don't know anything about Norma Jean Baker. Kim Kardashian has more talent and a better overall human than Norma Jean was...

I bet half of the thug life girls who say they "love" Marilyn Monroe so much, didn't even know her real name is Norma Jean
It's the birthday of Norma Jean Mortenson, born this day in Los Angeles, California in 1926. Her early life was rather unstable as she was moved around from living with her mother, several foster homes, orphanages and also with Grace McKee who was a friend of her mothers. It was McKee who began to groom the young Norma Jean for the movies dressing her up, having her practice smiling and told her she would be a movie star one day. After McKee married, Mortenson once again moved in with various relatives and orphanages. To avoid moving any more she married at 16 to James Dougherty. It was during World War II that Norma Jean was working at an aircraft factory in the manufacturing of parachutes. Some photographers showed up to take pictures of women working in the war effort and noticed Norma Jean Dougherty. They encouraged her to become a model and she began appearing on magazine covers. The photo shoots soon led to movie roles and a change of her hair to blonde, and a new iconic name, Marilyn Monroe. Monr . ...

How come the most well known models (Norma Jean aka Marilyn Monroe, and Bettie Page) were between 5'3 and 5'5.. yet the most well known models NOW .. HAVE to be above 5'7. Marilyn ranged from 120-140 pounds, and Bettie was between 120-130.. If it weren't for the short fluffy people - You wouldn't even have jobs!

Norma Jean (before she became Marilyn Monroe) was crowned Castroville's first Artichoke Queen in 1947.
Listening to ode to Marilyn Monroe. "Norma Jean, did you find your way?"
A fact I did'nt know until tonight, I learned while going to class online "Castroville is known as the Artichoke Capital of the World. In 1947, a young woman named Norma Jean was crowned Castroville’s first Artichoke Queen. She went on to become actress Marilyn Monroe."
Norma Jean and Marilyn is probably the worst Marilyn Monroe based production out there... The facts are wrong and the acting is hideous.
Looking for a registered "Y" name, for the little girl. Has to go with her call name of "Marilyn" (for Marilyn Monroe). With the beauty spot, she's gotta be called Marilyn. We've come up with "Yes sir, that's my Baby" and "Yellow Bikini" - which are "ok" but not fantastic. Anybody have any great ones?
The film Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean is so stupid ! Makes her out to be a stupid bimbo ..when really she was very smart and
"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle". - Norma Jean, aka, Marilyn Monroe
YAY there's a Marilyn Monroe film on :)
I recommend the Marilyn Monroe film at 9 o clock. I watched it and couldn't believe how much drugs controlled her life. I felt sorry for her that she couldn't just be herself- they fail to tell the conspiratorial story behind her death. Ask the FBI how she died poor lass.
There will never be a more beautiful and graceful woman than Marilyn Monroe. Love ya..Norma Jean Baker !!
To the ladies that claim Marilyn Monroe is their hero, If you don't know that her real name is Norma Jean, then she is NOT your hero. Just saying.
“Everyone's a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” ― Marilyn Monroe
I personally believe that Norm Jean made a good call changing her name to Marilyn Monroe. Norma Jean sounds like a stuck-up prude.
Norma Jean Baker or Marilyn Monroe - she had two personas private & public sounds like a modern jekyll & hyde lesson.

10-19-2012: TY CB. I advise readers to read the lines at the bottom of the photograph of Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean Baker). They sum it up for me. And, yes, I'm a straight man who has always had a fantasy love affair with this famous woman. One other thing. I've always thought she died under mysterious circumstances. If I'm not mistaken, she died while on a visit to the white house while Kennedy was president, and the rumors were always that Robert wanted to protect his brother, Jack, from the possibility of "scandal," and so, the rumor went, he got ahold of someone to do her in. I don't know obviously if that was the case. But it wouldn't surprise me a bit. From everything I've heard about her and read and seen on the PBS television program on her life, in some ways she was extraordinarily naive about white powerful American men and what they might be willing to do to protect their own butts. But, anyway, ty CB. She always struck me as a very sexy woman, and her photos still strike me that wa ...

Random: James Dean always made comments about racing and crashing etc ... Coincidentally he died in his Porsche he was planning to race .; Norma Jean (aka Marilyn Monroe) would always mention age and dying and her thoughts about that ... She died young; my question is . Do we humans internally either knowingly or unknowingly know how we will come to pass or does the fear of how, eventually cause our down fall?

This biography of Marilyn Monroe is written by Ted Jorden who knew her all his life. He was her teenage lover, and he was also one of the last people to see her alive.
Do you want to see me become her? Norma Jean in reference to Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean) was the most troubled, vulnerable yet absolutely beautiful person. I wish there were more of her around instead of the sticks we see in the papers today. I Love you Marilyn, R.I.P
I may be the only one, but I think Marilyn Monroe was even more beautiful as sweet, Norma Jean.

Marilyn Monroe sounds better than Norma Jean Mortenson thats why they made her change her name .
Tonight's quote comes from one of the most world renown sex symbols of all time, famed actress Norma Jean Mortenson, better known under the name "Marilyn Monroe": "It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone."
I just liked "Norma Jean - Marilyn Monroe reincarnation in her bath session about LOVE, LIFE, SEX, LUAGHTER." on Vimeo:
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ― Marilyn Monroe This girl is my idol. Why? Cause she was able to create a character that the whole nation fell in love with. She was able to play her character as Marilyn Monroe, who was nothing like Norma Jean Baker, and she could switch it on and off momentarily. She wasnt stupid, and proved the tabloids wrong. She was genuinely a good person, and even with all of her issues she was still able to become one of the most famous person in the world. She was and still is an inspiration to everybody. She came from one of the worst backgrounds and was still able to achieve fame and success. SL.

Goodbye Norma Jean... Some beautiful photos to mark the 50th anniversary of the passing of a legend, Marilyn Monroe
1926 to 1962. RIP Norma Jean Baker the little girl who craved love who turned in to Marilyn Monroe.
On the 50th anniversary of her death, Marilyn Monroe is remembered by the people who knew the girl, not the movie star.
Read this about Marilyn Monroe and thought it was cool af- "Marilyn Monroe wanted to prove a point. It was a sunny summer day in New York City, 1955. With a magazine editor and a photographer in tow, Marilyn walked down into Grand Central Terminal. Though it was the middle of a busy workday and the platform was packed with people, not a single person noticed her as she stood waiting for the subway. As the photographer’s camera clicked, she boarded the train and rode along quietly in a corner of the car. Nobody recognized her. Marilyn wanted to show that just by deciding to, she could be either glamorous Marilyn Monroe or plain Norma Jean Baker. On the subway, she was Norma Jean. But when she resurfaced onto the busy New York sidewalks, she decided to turn into Marilyn. She looked around and teasingly asked her photographer: “Do you want to see her?” There were no grand gestures — she just “fluffed up her hair, and struck a pose.” With this simple shift, she suddenly became magnetic. Time stood ...

Marilyn Monroe Blond bombshell found dead in Los Angeles home Probably the most celebrated of all actresses, Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jean Mortenson on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles General Hospital. Thirty-six years later, on August 5, 1962, her housekeeper found her dead body, nude and lying face down on her bed, apparently the victim of an overdose of sedatives. She made only 30 films in her lifetime, but her legendary status and mysticism will remain with film history forever. Abandoned by her father, she grew up in poverty with her mentally-ill mother who had a series of relationships, further confusing her daughter as to who it was who fathered her. In 1942, at the age of 16, Norma Jean married 21-year-old aircraft plant worker James Dougherty. The marriage only lasted four years, and they divorced in 1946. By this time Marilyn began to model swimsuits and bleached her hair blond. Bit parts in the movies followed but movie fans remembered her ditzy but very sexy blonde performance. In 1951, Mari ...
Goodbye, Norma Jean. This is the 50th anniversary of the death of Marilyn Monroe.
Wow. My profile says I haven't posted a comment for 395 days, so I better post something I feel is worth noting. Fifty years ago tonight, an American Icon whom we all heard of, Marilyn Monroe, was found dead from a drug overdose, alone. The door to her bedroom was locked, and showed little signs of joy like having photos or other personal treasures. She wanted to be so much more than a sex symbol, but sadly she could not shake the depression that accompanied her from the foster child known as Norma Jean who she once was, to the glamour and glitter of Hollywood stardom and fame as Marilyn Monroe that we all know her as now. From this tragedy may we all learn the value of a precious gift called life.

How do we Spell 'Marilyn Monroe'? Even She Couldn't Tell! According to sources, Marilyn Monroe had to ask a photographer how to spell her own name when signing an autograph. The easiest explanation is that this is not her real name, but an artistic pseudonym. Norma Jeane Dougherty was taken in by 20th Century Fox, but her name so didn't sound like a star’s name. Atleast that is what the producers though. This is why they came up with 'Marilyn Monroe'. This is final result after many proposed variations starting from 'Carole Lind' to 'Jean Norman'. Finally, director Ben Lyon decided to use 'Marilyn' as the name of Mrs. Miller- a 1920s stage actress whohe strongly cherished. The surname came as the young starlet took her mother's maiden name. As Lyon and the other staffat 20th Century Fox decided it sounded great and catchy, the old Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe- the star
