Overview

Inside Marilyn Monroe is an intense, personal memoir spanning more than a decade (1952-1962) by the then-actor John Gilmore, detailing his acquaintanceship with the most important movie star in the world, Marilyn Monroe. From Hollywood to New York, from New York back to Hollywood, the casual hello-goodbye friendship built to a point where Monroe and Gilmore were about to make a picture together before tragedy struck in Marilyn's life. Gilmore turned from acting to devote himself to writing, and his memoir gathers Marilyn's personal life through the eyes of many associates and stars. The result is a treasure trove presenting many facets of Marilyn's life that were previously unknown. Gilmore's memoir shuns the conspiracy theories and focuses on Marilyn as she really was -- not as the media-created, cardboard sexpot but the living and breathing "wonder" Gilmore knew. This haunting, highly personal memoir contains many photographs never before published.
