Featuring rare video footage, the doc takes the viewer deep inside the world of this Hollywood megastar. The film boasts in-depth interviews with Marilyn’s school teachers from childhood years, along with her family and numerous celebrities.
In one of the best Marilyn Monroe documentaries ever made, it somehow manages to transport the viewer to the past, highlighting her younger years as she is transferred from one foster house to another.
A short “real” home together with her real mother is shown during the time Marilyn was nine years old before her mother was taken to a mental institution. Additionally, the biography shows her short-lived marriage at the young age of 16 and also her modeling profession that leads her to the Hollywood stardom.
