Stars of the Silver Screen: Marilyn Monroe, a new documentary first aired on the UK’s Biography Channel, will be broadcast on Australia’s Studio network at 7.30 pm, reports The Australian, with this comment: “Fast-moving and intelligent, like Marilyn herself, this is a terrific biopic.”
Andrej Pejic – an androgynous, 20 year-old Australian male model of Bosnian descent – appears as Marilyn in ‘Norma Jean’, a risque short film styled by Patricia Field, who comments, “It looks at Marilyn’s status as a sexual icon and explores the societal implications of the sex-kitten femme.”
