My Name is Mara Beck and I am a 6th grader at Holman Middle School In Henrico County. The purpose of this website is that at my school we have been doing a nonfiction research unit. This is my project to show that I know how to be able to present information cited and in a clear format.
This was her as Norma Jean Baker. She literally changed her hair and life and became Marilyn Monroe, the person whose legacy will live on forever!
She was born June 1, 1926. Marilyn Monroe spent a lot of her childhood life in orphanages and foster care. Grace and Doc Goddard, a couple, took care of her for years. Her name used to be Norma Jean Baker. When she became famous she changed her hair and her name.
After being a professional model, Monroe got tons of acting gigs and became famous fast! The audience loved seeing her in comedy and dramatic roles. Someone that she worked with was Lee Strasburg. She earned a golden globe award for her performance in bus stop. Weather you know her from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” or even “How To Marry a Millionaire” you will know that she was good at what she did and will be remembered. She inspired artists like Madonna and Lady Gaga!
Marilyn Monroe has been in many movies but her most known one was in Scudda-Hoo! Scudda-Hay! You may also have seen her in a walk-on role in Full House. She took the comedy rode and it lead her to being in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes! She never understood why people saw here as pretty or funny. In August 5, 1962 she was found dead in her house from an overdose of sleeping pills.
