Rarest photos of young and innocent Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe - sex symbol, who is still popular today. However, only few people know how difficult her life was. Here are the facts that reveal Norma's life before she became Marilyn Monroe.

Norma Jeane Mortenson had a very difficult childhood: she experienced poverty, mother's hysterics and sexual harassment from her step-father. In return, she got her beautiful skin, pretty face, gorgeous body and outstanding charisma.

Soon after the birth Norma was sent to a foster family as her mother didn't have time for her. Norma lived with the Bolenders till she became an 8-year-old girl. Her mother, Gladys, took her back but had a nervous breakdown in a year and was committed to the Metropolitan State Hospital. Thanks God, Gladys' friend Grace McKee Goddard took responsibility over Norma.

After this, Norma was put into the Los Angeles Orphans Home, and then taken back to the Goddards' again. Then Mr. Goddard molested Norma and she escaped. She moved to her aunt's and then back to the Goddards'. In order to become independent, Norma Jeane Mortenson married her neighbor's son James Dougherty. However, the marriage wasn't very successful. Norma admitted that she was dying from boredom.

Her modelling carrier started accidentally while she was working at the factory. She had her first photoshoot by photographer David Conover, then she quit her job and started modelling.

Here are some Norma's photos before the fame:

Linalinda Eichin, she was a good business woman and had great comedic timing. Unfortunately she has been portrayed as a sexy bimbo, a role that made her famous. She yearned to be taken seriously, to have a serious movie role. The history of her death is very interesting as she hooked up with John F. Kennedy at Burt Lancasters beach house. JFK was helicoptered out quickly at the time of her demise. She was murdered. She was alive when ambulance workers arrived. Some of them have given testimony. JFK was going to eventually run for the presidency and couldn't have dirty baggage. His affair with her was one he persued. Money has covered up the truth and her life ended as tragic as it began.

I think Marilyn Monroe was misunderstood and didn't deserve all the criticisms she has received. I would have liked to know her. There was a lot more to her than a pretty face. She had been through some rough times(from what I have read) growing up. Those kinds of things affect people. Doesn't sound like she was protected. She deserved better things.

I hate to say it, but I never thought she was all that pretty. I just didn’t see it.

goosenbuster, I think you might want to review your dates. JFK had become President two years before her death. You might be thinking instead of RFK. …….And yes, she did not get recognition for her talent, though she showed her range in films like Niagara and The Misfits.

goosenbuster, Marilyn was also, to use your phrase "hooking up" with mafia boss Sam Giancanna. She could not be seen with JFK one week and a guest of Frank Sinatra's at his place whilst Sam Giancanna was also there. She may well have had a good business head but her timing or lack of it was terrible. It was a miracle if she arrived on set on time for filming in any of her movies unfortunately. I loved her, still do. She was probably the first real supermodel. Stunningly beautiful, great features and of course the hour glass figure, a true stunner

Interesting to know her story. Beautiful she was.

goosenbuster, I think you're confusing JFK with RFK. JFK was already the President. RFK was the hopeful. I agree she was most likely murdered.

That 1945 (estimated date) swimsuit shot looks completely wrong for the 40s - and the shoes also look wrong for that era - both are much more in keeping with the 50s...
