Inspired by [x], this is to show the range of roles that Marilyn Monroe played throughout her career and how she should not be judged on her dumb blonde roles, when her characters were so much more than that.

"I found her a very interesting child. I was able to have several chats with her on the set and I thought her most attractive, very shy and very eager to learn her job. We discussed books and I mentioned a few she might want to read."

"I had no idea she would become a big star. If she had something different from any other actresses, it wasn’t apparent at the time. She seemed very shy and quiet. There was something sad about her."

"She seemed very shy, and I remember that when the studio workers would whistle at her, it seemed to embarrass her."

-Cary Grant, co-star in Monkey Business
