Marilyn & Me

Marilyn & Me

An intimate memoir recalling a young photographer's relationship with Marilyn Monroe just months before her death, with extraordinary photographs, some of which have never been published.'With the precision of a surgeon, Schiller slices through the façade of Marilyn Monroe in his unflinching memoir. Revealing and readable, it's a book I couldn't put down.' —Tina BrownWhen he pulled his station wagon into the 20th Century-Fox studios parking lot in Los Angeles in 1960, twenty-three-year-old Lawrence Schiller kept telling himself that this was just another assignment, just another pretty girl. But the assignment and the girl were anything but ordinary. Schiller was a photographer for Look magazine and his subject was Marilyn Monroe, America's sweetheart and sex symbol. In this intimate memoir, Schiller recalls the friendship that developed between him and Monroe while he photographed her in Hollywood in 1960 and 1962 on the sets of Let's Make Love and the unfinished feature Something's Got to Give, the last film she worked on. Schiller recalls Marilyn as tough and determined, enormously insecure as an actress but totally self-assured as a photographer's model. Monroe knew how to use her looks and sexuality to generate publicity, and in 1962 she allowed Schiller to publish the first nude photographs of her in over ten years, which she then used as a weapon against a studio that wanted to have her fired—and ultimately succeeded. The Marilyn Schiller knew and writes about was adept at hiding deep psychological scars, but she was also warm and open, candid and disarming, a movie star who wished to be taken more seriously than she was. Accompanying the text are eighteen of the author's own photographs, some never previously published. Many writers have tried to capture her essence on the page, but as someone who was in the room, a young man Marilyn could connect with and trust, Schiller gives us a unique look at the real woman offscreen.'In this short, splendid memoir, ...

Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words

Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words

'You Are The First One I'm Telling This To. I'll Tell You All. . .'No one looked like her. No one walked like her. No one talked like her. Sexy yet vulnerable, and unexpectedly talented, she was no ordinary screen goddess. Few really knew her. What others wrote, she called 'Lies! Lies! Lies!' Here, at last, is Marilyn Monroe's account, in her own singular voice. It was June 1, 1962, her thirty-sixth birthday. Famed photographer and reporter George Barris had come to see Marilyn on the set of what would be her final, unfinished, film. They had met eight years earlier, became friends, and planned to do a picture book and autobiography. Now the time was right. For the next six weeks Barris photographed and interviewed the actress. 'Don't believe anything you read about me except this. . .' she told Barris. And so she began to confide the truth about herself. Barris last talked to Marilyn on August 3, less than twenty-four hours before she was found dead in her apartment. At their last meeting, she was effervescent and eager to embrace life. 'I feel I'm just getting started,' she said. Barris firmly believes that murder, not suicide, caused Marilyn's untimely end and he could not bring himself to publish her thoughts or the haunting photos of that summer--until now. Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words is a candid memoir enhanced by 150 black-and-white and color photos, many never before published. A highlight is 'The Last Photo Shoot' where Marilyn appears luminous without makeup on the beach at Santa Monica and in a North Hollywood house. This moving book brings Marilyn Monroe back--beautiful, flirtatious, and sweet as a first kiss--for one rare and radiant farewell.George Barris has worked as a photojournalist for many of the country's major magazines, from Life to Cosmopolitan. He is the co-author (with Gloria Steinem) of Marilyn-Norma Jean, and contributed to Norman Mailer's book, Marilyn. He lives in California.

Kirk Douglas

Kirk Douglas

Of all the male stars of Golden Age Hollywood, Kirk Douglas became the final survivor, the last icon of a fabled era that the world will never see again. When he celebrated his birthday in 2016, a headline read--LEGENDARY HOLLYWOOD HORNDOG TURNS 100. He was both a charismatic actor and a man of uncommon force and vigor. His restless and volcanic spirit is reflected both in his films and through his many sexual conquests. Douglas was the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, his father a ragman. After service in the Navy during World War II, he hit Hollywood, oozing masculinity and charm. Conquering Tinseltown and bedding its leading ladies, he became the personification of the American dream, moving from obscurity and (literally) rags to riches and major-league fame. The Who's Who cast of characters roaring through his life featured not only a daunting list of Hollywood goddesses, but the town's most colossal male talents and egos, too. They included his kindred hellraiser and best buddy Burt Lancaster, John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Billy Wilder, Laurence Olivier, Rock Hudson, and a future U.S. President, Ronald Reagan. Douglas began his conquests in New York, stealing the virginity of model Betty Bacall before she moved to Hollywood, changed her name to Lauren, and married Humphrey Bogart. Later, both Marilyn Monroe and Lana Turner pursued him for boudoir duty. "I had them all...well, almost," he boasted. He interpreted Joan Crawford as "the equivalent of six sisters and a mother." Rita Hayworth "had what other girls had...only more so." Marlene Dietrich was "the personification of sexuality," and Ava Gardner was "the hottest game in town." "Barbara Stanwyck may have had a lezzie streak, but not with me. Call her a tigress. Over the decades, he immortalized himself in film after film, delivering, like a Trojan, one memorable performance after another. He was at home in film noir, as a western gunslinger, as an adventurer (in both ancient and modern sagas), as a juggler, ...

PopSugar From the author of Daisy Jones & The Sixan entrancing novel ';that speaks to the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor in us all' (Kirkus Reviews), in which a legendary film actress reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life.

Burt Reynolds, Put the Pedal to the Metal

Burt Reynolds, Put the Pedal to the Metal

In the 1970s and '80s, Burt Reynolds represented a new breed of movie star: Charming and relentlessly macho, he was a good ol' Southern boy who made hearts throb and audiences laugh. He was Burt Reynolds, a football hero and a guy you might have shared some jokes with in a redneck bar. After an impressive but tormented career, rivers of negative publicity, a self-admitted history of bad choices, and a spectacular fall from Hollywood grace, he died in Jupiter, Florida, at the age of 82 in September of 2018. Once, he posed nude for a woman's magazine. Even though, by his admission, it ultimately hurt his career, fan mail from horny females poured in from across the nation. For five years, both in terms of earnings and popularity, he was the number one box office star in the world. Smokey and the Bandit (1977) became the biggest-grossing car-chase film of all time. As he put it, perhaps as a means of bolstering his image, "I like nothing better than making love to some of the most beautiful women in the world." He was referring to his sexual involvements with Catherine Deneuve, Farrah Fawcett, Dolly Parton, Cybill Shepherd, Tammy Wynette, Lucie Arnaz, Kim Basinger, Candice Bergen, Lauren Hutton, Lorna Luft, Sarah Miles, Angie Dickinson, Elizabeth Taylor, or Marilyn Monroe, whom he once picked up on his way to the Actors Studio in New York City. He also hung out with Bette Davis. ("I always had a thing for her.") Love with another VIP came in the form of that "Sweetheart of the G.I.s," Dinah Shore. Their May-September affair sparked endless chatter. "I appreciate older women," he once said in a moment of self-revelation. He entered another much-publicized romance with actress Sally Field, the "second love of my life." After his death, The Flying Nun said, "Burt still lives in my heart," but then expressed relief that, because of his recent death, he'd never read what she'd said about him in her memoir. Men liked him too: He played poker with Frank Sinatra; shared boo...

Sam Shaw

Sam Shaw

Vi kender alle det ikoniske billede af Marilyn Monroe i den hvide kjole, ståede over en rist i New York. Fotografiet er taget af den berømte amerikanske fotograf og filmskaber Sam Shaw (1912-99). Han er i dag kendt for motiver fra hans hjemby New York; fotografier der skabte flere forside-billeder på bl.a. tidsskrifterne Life og Look! i 1950erne og 60erne. Hans still-billeder fra de film han selv producerede – eksempelvis Paris Blues fra 1961 – har i dag tilsvarende ikonstatus. Men det er især hans portrætter af vennerne blandt de mange Hollywood-stjerner, kunstnere, og intellektuelle, der har etableret ham som en af sin tids væsentlige kunstnere. Bogen viser kendte og mindre kendte værker fra kunstnerens 60-årige karriere. Fra de fotojournalistiske billeder til sports- og, portrætfotografierne samt ikke mindst de film-relaterede billeder af stjerner som Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Burt Lancaster, Lauren Bacall, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Anthony Quinn og mange flere.
