  She was "just another" pretty girl from Los Angeles, born mere miles from 'Tinseltown'. But for Norma Jeane Mortenson, a less probable path to becoming a Hollywood legend could scarcely be imagined. Beginning practically from birth, she was abandoned by family, shuffled between foster homes, orphaned, abused and so (quite understandably) believed herself to be unwanted. Depicted here prior to attaining film stardom, she became (and continues to be) one of the greatest cultural icons in modern times.

For some, her troubled life and awful death represent her vulnerability, but she demonstrated admirable perseverance and resourcefulness in her turbulent 36 years :grin: :hi:
