Marilyn by Milton Greene in 1954.
Ladies of the Chorus - 1948
“One weekend at the Strasberg beach house [in the summer of 1955], Marilyn stood naked in the moonlight while Susan [Strasberg, daughter of Lee Strasberg who created ‘the Method’], sharing her room, stared fascinated, admiring the resilience, buoyancy and glow of Marilyn’s skin. ‘I wish I were like you,’ said Susan. ‘Oh no, Susie,’ Marilyn replied. ‘I wish I were like you! You’re about to play a great part on Broadway - Anne Frank - and people have respect for you. No, no - I have none of those things.’” - Extract from ‘The Biography’ by Donald Spoto
