Overview

The making of Marilyn

Fashion photographer Andre de Dienes's life was changed forever one day in 1945 when he met a lovely aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty. He instantly fell in love with her charming innocence and the two were briefly engaged. They took many adventurous road trips around the West in those early years, de Dienes shooting photos of Norma Jeane in every possible natural setting. He soon built up a huge portfolio of stunning photographs of the smiling brunette, which helped to launch her model career and, a few years later, the film career that was to make her a legend. His entire relationship with the star, including many private moments shared only between the two, is detailed in de Dienes's secret memoirs, which were discovered when Monroe fans ravaged his home after his death in 1988. Never before published, the memoirs tell a beautiful story of love and friendship from the point of view of someone who knew Marilyn intimately; describing the transformation from Norma Jeane to

Marilyn Monroe - the evolution of a sensitive, ambitious girl into a deeply troubled megastar - from an inside perspective, they shed light on a little-known side of Marilyn. From their trip to see Norma Jeane's mother in an Oregon mental hospital to Marilyn's visit to his home a few days before her death, de Dienes recounts all of the emotional moments they shared.

For this very special publication, we've chosen to publish a facsimile of De Dienes's complete manuscript as a separate 'diary' which accompanies the sumptuous picture book. Readers may choose to read the entire text, or simply scan the edited selections which are included alongside the photos in the main book. This unique combination of de Dienes's memoirs and an extensive selection of his Monroe photographs (which numbered in the thousands) makes for an unprecedented personal exploration into the psychology, history, and iconography of the world's favorite movie star.

    This book is an outstanding informational book that I recommend very highly. It might have well be written by Marilyn Monroe herself. It seems like a first hand account of Marilyn Monroe's life. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested or a fan like myself.
