The editor/art director seemed to favor images of the actress at some distance from the camera, or with her back to it, or her head turned away or else partially obscured, if it's shadowy, blurred or grainy so much the better. Is that tiny speck really Marilyn in hot pants in Central Park? who cares!
Am I being too harsh? let's see- barring the front & back cover- of the 120 photos included, only 18 are in color. So.. How shall we allocate this valuable color ink resource? Hmmm...well! let's have one (full page) color photo of a B&W photograph, also one (full page) photo of M.M's tombstone, and one double page spread of 'Misfits' Marilyn jumping on the beach ( one page of which is just sea & sky), how about a double page spread of a blurry close-up by Eve arnold, (a shadowy sliver of face on one page and just black background filling the other),or a photo of a western union telegram, and a photo of her passport (with B&W id photo), 2 small magazine covers of no special quality in the corner of a page of type, a harsh flash wedding photo with gloved hands covering mouth & nose and a veil obscuring the rest, Norma Jean at the beach head turned down & away from camera, three famous Milton Greene pics squashed onto one page (the ballerina skirt ones) the largest of which features no visible face just blonde hair, that leaves just four more color shots & I'm afraid none are as attractive as the cover photo.Read more ›
However, it is not "magazine" or "coffee table" sized, as one might often expect from Life Books.
This needs to be stated here, because the listed dimensions are nonsensical,
and are therefore apt to be justly ignored (0.6 x 6.6 x 0.3 inches on the date of this review…
not dissimilar to a linguini noodle).
I'd have reported the discrepancy under "update product info", but that isn't a flexible option,
in this regard, and so I've reluctantly rated this at one-star,
since most of us read those first, or even exclusively!
The brevity of this well-written and generously illustrated account of Marilyn Monroe's fabled but foreshortened life will, however, leave some readers gasping, as I was, for more details of the larger-than-life personalities and earth-shaking events that made these times remarkable and memorable. But no single book could possibly cover so much ground. Fortunately, though, a multitude of writers following Miss Monroe's demise, have addressed this issue, providing a plethora of biographical detail on the life and times of Hollywood's ultimate, and still reigning, Queen. Many of these works are available from Amazon Books.
