Marilyn Monroe was an American actress who became a major sex symbol, starring in several commercially successful films during the 1950s, and who is considered a cultural icon. She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, California, U.S. and died on August 5, 1962, in Los Angeles.

She endured a loveless childhood and a brief teenage marriage. She spent her youth in foster homes and orphanages. Finally, a job as a photographer’s model led to a movie career. Her film debut was in Scudda-Hoo! Scudda-Hay! (1948), but her first important role was in The Asphalt Jungle (1950). She then starred in a series of highly successful comedies, including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), and The Seven Year Itch (1955).

She was a top-billed actress for a decade, and her films grossed $200 million by the time of her death in 1962.
