One of the most iconic actresses of 1950’s, Marilyn Monroe made herself a household name with her pleasing look and glam-packed performances. Her name became epitome of Hollywood and she virtually ruled over the celluloid cinema with her spectacular performances for almost 16 years. Her successful yet controversy packed career had witnessed several up heals on both personal and professional front. She was instrumental in transforming the perceived notions of American actress from the women centric portrayal of 1940’s into a more fashionable yet bold realm that America witnessed in her time as an actress.
Bestowed with a yearning for an ambitious life, Marilyn Monroe overcame the hardship and the struggles that she encountered in her childhood to became one of the most loved and bankable stars of Hollywood. She had a mother who could not even look after her daughter and a father whose identity was not even revealed to her. After being exposed to the harsh realities of the calculative world, she thrived and succeeded in establishing herself as an apt archetype of an ambitious person having reached the zenith against all the odds.
In the following years her characters in the movies viz. Bus Stop (1956), The Prince and the Showgirl (1957, Some Like It Hot (1959) not only attracted footfalls to the theatre but also won her critical acclaim. It also marked a shift in her popular projection as “Blond Dumb” to an innate actress who could also act if offered a chance. Her professional career epitomized by sporadic brawls with the production studios such as Fox and Colombia over the issues that ranged from her being unprofessional in the sets to that of payment of relatively low remuneration.
Being an ambitious person who could go to the last mile to accomplish her dreams, Marilyn Monroe had to pay its price in the form of her short lived marriages. She was too ambitious to remain as a housewife forever and therefore found herself distressed in the midst of household chores. Her divorces with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller were in tandem with her vocal persuasion of career goals and her emergence as a critically acclaimed actress in the later part of her career only substantiated that. After having succumbed to depression and instability that she encountered throughout her life in the absence of endearment that a family offers, she ended her life on August 5th, 1962 in Los Angeles after an overdose of Barbiturates. Post a series of prolong investigations, the authorities termed it as an act of suicide.
