Picture of Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin on set; Something’s Got To Give, 1962.
Ella Fitzgerald wanted to play at Mocambo, a very popular club in the 50’s but they wouldn’t book her because she was black. Marilyn Monroe called the owner & said she would sit at the front table every night Ella sang. And she did.
In 1952 Marilyn Monroe was chosen as "Miss torpedo" by The Torpedo Gang of the destroyer U.S.S. Destroyer. Photos by Earl Theisen.
