Marilyn Monroe


Product Description:

The Postal Service honoured Marilyn Monroe with the issuance of a 32-cent commemorative stamp on June 1, 1995, at Universal Studios Hollywood, in Universal City, California. Designed by award-winning artist Michael Deas of New Orleans, Louisiana, the Marilyn Monroe stamp is the first stamp in the Legends of Hollywood series, which commemorates film personalities who have made an indelible mark on the American motion picture industry. Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortensen on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, California. After spending most of her childhood in orphanages and foster homes, Monroe became a photographer's model. Her photograph on a calendar led to her film debut in "Scudda-Hoo! Scudda-Hay! (1948)," followed by other minor roles until she was recognised for small parts in "The Asphalt Jungle (1950)" and "All About Eve (1950)." Monroe's talent as a comedienne became apparent in such classics as "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)," How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)," and "The Seven Year Itch (1955)." Eager to hone her acting skills, Monroe studied at the Actor's Studio in New York, under Lee Strasberg. Later, she returned to Hollywood to star in more serious films, such as "Bus Stop (1956)," "The Prince and the Showgirl (1957)," "Some Like It Hot (1959)," and "The Misfits (1961)." Prior to her death on August 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe completed a legacy of 29 films.
