Marilyn Monroe Weekend

She died 50 years ago today, but Marilyn Monroe is all over TV this weekend. Turner Classic Movies ended a 24-hour marathon of her movies this morning, and tonight PBS will revive a documentary about her with “ashen-faced talking heads” (including my own).

Everything meaningful, and so much more, has been said about her long ago but, for those too young to know all that and for those who can’t get enough of her, here is the full story of the weekend my friend Ed Feingersh and I spent with her in March 1955.
