It was 47 years ago today that Marilyn Monroe died of an overdose of barbiturates. There are plenty of theories on whether or not it was accidental or intentional. I don't feel it is appropriate to go into that, certainly not today, so I'll just say that she was a lovely woman who died tragically young, and didn't seem to have a very happy life, at least not towards the end. So, here she is from an appearance on the Jack Benny Program in 1953, in happier times. Rest In Peace, Miss Monroe.
