‘There’s Something About Marilyn’

“She was a beautiful, glamourous, funny and successful woman who was also very mysterious. She didn’t have a lot of friends and didn’t hang out with Hollywood people … She was on a perpetual self-improvement quest in a way that many movie stars are not … When celebrities die before their time it is the lost potential we think about most. This happens with many famous people but Marilyn generates the greatest interest and devotion, and has therefore created the biggest market for what she left behind.”

Margaret Barrett of Bonham’s and Butterfield’s, as quoted in an article by Saul Wordsworth exploring Monroe’s enduring appeal, published in UK magazine The Market and also online.
