After raising $405 for the Animal Haven charity with their ‘Flowers for Marilyn‘ Christmas appeal, Immortal Marilyn have started 2015 in style with updates to their website, including a 1956 article from Anything Goes magazine, about Marilyn’s calendar shoot with Tom Kelley; two new drawings from Bruno Doucin; and from me, an expanded profile of Pat Newcomb (which you can also read here.)
Flowers were delivered to Marilyn’s crypt today by members of Immortal Marilyn (see above.) Over on the fansite, this month’s updates include Fraser’s review of Carl Rollyson‘s A Life of the Actress; my article about Marilyn’s hero, Abraham Lincoln; anda 1956 Movieland article, ‘Is Marilyn Monroe Too Pampered For Her Own Good?’
Pictured above is Immortal Marilyn‘s birthday bouquet, placed at Marilyn’s crypt. This month’s updates include a Top Secret magazine exposé from 1960; a review of They Knew Marilyn Monroe; and my tribute to Peter Mangone.
Staff at Westwood Memorial Park, Los Angeles, noticed a number of floral tributes placed by Marilyn’s crypt on her recent birthday. The heart-shaped daisy wreath, at right, was donated by members of Immortal Marilyn, who also raised $311 for the Animal Haven charity.
