Overview

This is the Official digital release of the rare and very collectable first book entirely devoted to Marilyn Monroe.

"The Marilyn Monroe Story. The Intimate Inside Story of Hollywood's Hottest Glamour Girl" was the first book written exclusively about Marilyn Monroe. It was originally published in 1953 by the Rudolph Field Company. It was published as a Hardcover with a color dust jacket and also as a Paperback. The original book was 63 pages with 39 gorgeous black and white photos of Marilyn Monroe.  
 
The casual remark, “It’s about time someone wrote the real story about Marilyn Monroe” led to the writing of this book. 
 
It reveals the heart and soul of the girl who surely is America’s sweetheart and heartthrob.  Her struggles for success and her studied endeavors to achieve happiness is told in a simple, frank, always warm manner.  Just the way Marilyn would want it to be told. 
 
The book is at home with Miss Monroe from her early childhood until her appearance in the movie “How To Marry A Millionaire.”  As you read, you’ll laugh and sigh with the pretty, plucky girl who cracked the hard shell of Hollywood to become one of the greatest box office stars.

Meet the Author

Joe Franklin (born Joseph Fortgang on March 9, 1926) is an American radio and television personality. From New York City, Franklin is credited with hosting the first television talk show. The show began in 1951 on WJZ-TV (later WABC-TV) and moved to WOR-TV (later WWOR-TV) from 1962 to 1993.

nown as "the king of nostalgia", Franklin's highly-rated television and radio shows, especially a cult favorite to cable television viewers and his long-running "Memory Lane" radio programs, focused on old-time show-business personalities.

Franklin has an encyclopedic knowledge of the music, musicians and singers, the Broadway stage shows, the films and entertainment stars of the first half of the 20th Century, and is an acknowledged authority on silent film.

He began his entertainment career at 16 as a record picker for Martin Block's popular "Make Believe Ballroom" radio program.

Among Franklin's own idols, as he frequently told viewers, were Al Jolson, whom he literally "followed around" as a teenager in New York, and Eddie Cantor, who eventually began buying jokes from the young Franklin and whose Carnegie Hall show Franklin later produced.

Many of today's well known talents such as Woody Allen, Barbra Streisand and Julia Roberts got their first television exposure on The Joe Franklin Show. Others, notoriously shy of live interviews, made frequent appearances on Franklin's programs: Frank Sinatra, for instance, appeared four times.

In addition to his TV Talk Show, Joe appeared regularly with Conan O'Brien. He's also seen on "The David Letterman Show," "Live With Regis And Kathy Lee," and has been mentioned several times on the hit cartoon series "The Simpsons."

I thought this was a book about Marilyn Monroe's life - very disappointed with the ending, the last ten pages or so were not even about her!
