Few celebrities, before or since, have elicited adoration and fascination like Marilyn Monroe. Since her first appearance on the silver screen in 1950, people have attempted to “figure out” the formula behind her allure and recreate it — to no avail. This begs the question: What is singularly unique about Marilyn? How does an actress become an icon?
This five-week Course will deconstruct Monroe’s stardom through a critical analysis of her films and the publicity surrounding them. Complemented by readings from notable biographies, film critics, and Monroe’s own diaries, this class sets out to get to the heart of the myth, the actress, and the woman behind the image.
