Beyond Marilyn - Marilyn Monroe's Early Modeling Career

I think everyone, old enough, in America (and beyond) has heard of Marilyn Monroe. However, Monroe’s early modeling career at the Blue Book Modeling Agency in Hollywood has never been fully explored until now.

Beyond Marilyn draws on a rare collection of never-before-seen photographs, documents, and letters from the archives of Emmeline Snively, head of the Blue Book Agency and Marilyn’s mentor, to reveal Marilyn’s life as a young model before she became a platinum blonde starlet.

On the day of Monroe's funeral, Snively gave an interview from her office, talking about the girl she had discovered, before announcing, rather dramatically, that she was closing the lid on her Marilyn Monroe archive that day - to 'lock it away forever'.

This archive was purchased by Astrid Franse, and together with bestselling Marilyn Monroe biographer Michelle Morgan they draw on this collection of never-before-seen documents, letters and much, much more.
