Norma Jeane Mortenson was born on June 1, 1926 into a broken home in Los Angeles, California. She married three times, the first at just sixteen years of age. Her first husband, Jim Dougherty, was a neighbor. The marriage didn’t last long. After a brief stint as a model, Norma Jeane changed her name to Marilyn Monroe and had her first taste of Hollywood fame in The Asphalt Jungle (1950). FramedArt’s selection of Marilyn Monroe prints spans her career. No star has ever burned as brightly, before or since.
While Niagara (1952) marked her first starring role, It was Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) that forever changed the game.
In 1954, Marilyn wed Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio, one of the greatest New York Yankees of all time. The marriage soon ended, but Marilyn and Joe remained close. She subsequently married Arthur Miller, the great American playwright, in 1956. They divorced in 1962, not long before her untimely death.
