I can't imagine finding another biography of her that can even come close to comparing. It changed my life.
So I bought this copy, which is excellent. Guiles book is the only
biography dealing with the REAL woman. What I found interesting was
her family's history of mental illness. I wish it could have delt with her grandmother more, Della Monroe. I felt she would have been the picture of Marilyn, if she had survived. Her mother, Gladys was the
spitting image of her daughter, as was her 'sister' Berniece.
But Marilyn was very talented--in fact when I saw, LADIES IN THE CHORUS,
I was blown away by her singing. This girl has got "real" talent and
can act like nothing I've ever seen,(DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK, 1952).
Toward the end of her life, mental illness was destroying her life, along with severe alcoholism. But, I can't help but feel, that she was taken advantage of, especially by the Kennedys. I don't believe she killed herself, she had too much to live for, but it is possible that because of her involvement with the President and his brother, her life
was in grave danger. People cared about Marilyn and still do. She left
a unique collection of work. No one could ever replace her.
