Marilyn Monroe: 14 Stations

with 2 comments

A pilgrimage to places and structures to discover the history and destiny of Marilyn. Also a Star Map. When I was growing up, teenagers on the weekend would be on certain streetcorners selling maps to star’s homes. Yes, I lived amongst the myths.

On Easter m.m. went with all the other orphan girls up behind the Hollywood Bowl to form a human cross.

formed by the girls on the hillside.

    • Thanks. Of course, it is Hollywood, the mixture of fact and fake that makes for myth.
