Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most popolare dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popolare nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called...

Marilyn always loved and empathized with animals. Throughout her life she had a succession of pets, and she would be deeply affected if she ever came across an animal suffering o the victim of cruelty.
This sensitivity was evident during her marriage to James Dougherty: when he once came home with a rabbit ready to skin and eat, Norma Jeane refused to touch the animal and was inconsolable for hours. Things were worse when he came home after a hunting trip with a deer that was still alive. Heartbroken, Norma Jean pleaded with him no to harm the mortally wounded creature, but it was already...

te know a lot of people have, oh gee, real quirky problems that they wouldn’t dare have anyone know. But one of my problems happens to show: I’m late. I guess people think that why I’m late is some kind of arrogance and I think it is the opposite of arrogance. I also feel that I’m not in this big American rush, te know, te got to go and te go to go fast but for no good reason. The main thing is, I want to be prepared when I get there to give a good performance o whatever to the best of my ability. A lot of people can be there on time and do nothing, which I have seen them do, and te know, all sit around sort of chitchatting and talking trivia about their social life. Gable detto about me, “When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.”

“Marilyn adored animals; she was drawn to all living things. She would spend hundreds of dollars to try to save a storm-damaged albero and would mourn its death. She welcomed birds, providing albero houses and Cibo for the many species that visited her lawn; she worried about them in bad weather. She worried about Cani and cats. She once had a dog that was da nature contemplative, but she was convinced he was depressed. She did her best to make him play, and that depressed him even more; on the rare occasions when he did an antic pirouette, Marilyn would hug and baciare him, delirious with joy.”

- Norman Rosten, poet (via Metamorphosis da David Willis & Stephen Schmidt)
Fortunately, to cheer her up, Hugo came to mind, and with a squeal she runs to the car, calls me to unisciti her, and we’re off to get Hugo, who was getting a check-up at the local kennel. One could never tell da looking at him whether o not these sudden reunions pleased him. His face would mask every emotion; like a great actor he kept te guessing. At times—I had seen this reunion often—he would almost smile, but a stiff upper lip got in the way, leaving Hugo with nothing, absolutely nothing.

Hugo loves Marilyn, and she adores him. Beauty and the Beast—Hugo bore out this maxim perfectly....
