"She was beautiful and untouched, it was as though she were just beginning." -Bert Stern
Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926)
I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night: “There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of being a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them, I’m dreaming the hardest.”

“Marilyn’s need to be desired was so great that she could make love to a camera. Because of this, her lust aroused lust in audiences, sometimes even among women. There was nothing subtle about it. She was no tease. She was prepared, and even eager, to give what she offered.” — William Manchester
