Isn’t Hugh Hefner even buried next to her now?! Creep can’t even leave her alone in death.
Netflix wants that Marilyn $$$
I had no idea she had endometriosis, too! Her story is so intense. I really appreciate you making these videos!
At least Ana De Armas is a much better casting choice than Michelle Williams 🤭 but still I agree, we're obsessed and need to let her rest.
She is literally beautiful
pretty okay vid but... eyebrows... where are they
Girl you might as well shave them brows off
Did you really say Andy Warhol was a woman?…
I think Marilyn Monroe is actually autistic but no one wants to admit
I would pass out from happiness if you did a video about Josephine Baker
I think a video about the culture of old hollywood/the romanticization of hollywood (in hollywood lol) in general would be an interesting topic? I feel like often times people glorify the golden era so much and ignore a lot of its issues esp around race and discrimination. rn im specifically thinking about once upon a time in hollywood and lalaland and how that contrasts with something like the show hollywood where its literally like 'here's a crazy premise imagine if minorities weren't discriminated against'
Wonderful analysis and commentary on the Hollywood Starlet machine of the 1950s. You are so spot on with how many women of this era projected many of their own feelings in order to better discuss or open a conversation about their own personal issues onto these celebrity figureheads. Growing up I spent a lot of time around my grandmother and she LOVED this era of Hollywood - she was a frequent reader of these starlet gossip magazines. I think that at the time many women didn't feel like they had an outlet to be anything but these reductive roles that were very clearly defined for them by this Hollywood machine and the male gaze. I watched many of these movies growing up thanks to Grandma and you are also astute in your observation on her comedic timing and acting abilities within that "Marilyn" persona ( special shout out to Marylin's comedic timing in Some Like It Hot.)
For suggestions on further deep dives on old Hollywood I'd love to see an analysis on Elizabeth Taylor (infamous for her 7 marriages... Child star from an early age... pushed the barriers of 'acceptable' starlet acting) or Shirley Temple (biggest Hollywood draw from 1934-1938 and eventually ended her career as US Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. Wow.)
Laurence Olivier showed absolutely no class with that comment on Marilyn Monroe.
Her legacy will stay for ever 💕
The fact people don't talk about Dorothy Dandridge
She deserved so much better :( I've always loved her, but in a respectful way. She will never rest as long as people keep using her name for profit and financial gain.
You did a very good job here. Very well said and documented. Thank you. I kinda felt alone in my opinion on things regardin marylin...
hugh hefner 🤢
I COMPLETELY agree!
