    Just watched "Some Like it Hot" yesterday. I am decorating my living room Old Hollywood and am filling it with Marilyn pictures. There is such a mystery about her death. Does anyone have a good timeline of her last days and the hours after her death? I should buy a book. Anyone have suggestions?

    What really happened to Marilyn???

    Photo by Richard Avedon. This is my fav photo of Marilyn. He saw beneath the manufactored persona of Marilyn Monroe and gave us a glimpse of Norma Jean underneath.

    She's still worshipped as an icon and we still don't know exactly who Norma Jean was...

    RIP.

    Fifty years after her death, rare, unpublished photographs of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe have been put on display at a gallery in Warsaw.

    Marilyn Monroe is still a style icon, even half a century after her untimely death
    The collection of 3,780 photographs by Milton H. Greene, which had been stored for over a decade, was transferred to the Polish government in 1995 as part of a settlement in an embezzlement case involving a US businessman.
    The exhibition titled 'Marilyn Monroe's Hollywood' shows only 60 photographs, taking up a few rooms of the Association's gallery in Warsaw's old town, and will be on display until the whole collection is sold at an open auction.
