the true marilyn

Crime scene photograph showing the dead body of actress Marilyn Monroe, who overdosed on barbiturates at her Brentwood home on August 5, 1962.

A responding officer is pointing at an empty bottle of Nembutal sleeping capsules on Monroe’s bedside table - heavy doses of the pill as well as other prescription medicines were later found in her stomach. Monroe’s death was officially deemed a “probable suicide”.

Random Fact #909

Ella Fitzgerald wasn’t allowed to perform at the Mocambo, a popular club in Hollywood, because she was black. 

Marilyn Monroe called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. 

The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.
