the misfits

All her life as an actress, when Marilyn finished work and went home, if she couldn’t sleep she’d take a sleeping pill. Often she’d do this at seven or eight o’clock and go to bed early, and then if she couldn’t sleep she’d take another on at nine or ten, and then maybe again at midnight or one in the morning. Well, by six in the morning the pills would all start to work and she’d be drugged up, and when this happened on The Misfits I would let her lay there in bed while I did her makeup. - Whitey Synder (friend and make-up artist)
