Playing a character both onstage and off, Marilyn Monroe seemingly led a life of struggle and heartbreak. Her moral beliefs remained true, though, which is why attempts at preserving the starlet’s existence are so sought out by Hollywood. Her most recent biopic, Marilyn in Manhattan, is the surprising documentary which chronicles Marilyn’s secret move to New York City.
The true compassion of this documentary is found in Milton Greene, Marilyn’s most trusted partner, as he pushed her to break that Hollywood mold she so desperately feared and regretted.
This documentary will be available on all digital platforms on July 31st, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Marilyn’s final moments.
