Fifty cents for your soul

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” ― Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn MonroeMarilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortensen on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, California. She had a troubled childhood, spending time in the Los Angeles orphanage and a long succession of foster homes.

Today, July 19th, is the anniversary of her 1946 screen test with 20th Century Fox. She subsequently signed her first studio contract and changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. The rest, as they say, is history.

When she died in mysterious circumstances in 1962, the world was stunned, and speculation about it still persists to this day. Read about it here.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
