As regular readers will know, ES Updates has brought you the latest news about Marilyn and her legacy since 2010. As of June 2020, this blog has a new name – and a new home. Thanks for your support and I hope you’ll join me over at The Marilyn Report.
If, like many of us, you’re waiting out coronavirus at home, Michelle Morgan’s The Little Book of Marilyn is an easy, uplifting read, with fan input, makeovers, craft tips and more – read my review here.
My review of Amanda Konkle’s excellent book, Some Kind of Mirror: Creating Marilyn Monroe, is featured in the latest issue (#38) of UK fanzine Mad About Marilyn, alongside articles about Marilyn’s arduous promotional tour for the final Marx Brothers movie, Love Happy (1949); ‘A New Marilyn Comes Back’, first published by Movie Spotlight in 1956; and a profile of photographer Bruno Bernard, aka ‘Bernard of Hollywood’.
As previously reported on ES Updates, There’s No Business Like Show Business is being screened at Picturehouse Cinemas across the UK throughout June. You can read my review here, and check out dates here.
