Marilyn Monroe no makeup - true beauty! (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.
Marilyn Monroe first appeared on the silver screen in small, largely forgettable roles in the Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve. That led to a seven-year contract that led to her first big part in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, followed by the super hit The Seven Year Itch in 1955. Marilyn Monroe won critical acclaim in Bus Stop, but never completed her final movie, The Misfits, with Clark Gable.
