Vanity Fair

Have you seen the new Vanity Fair with Marilyn Monroe and the "Monroe Files". Evidently, they found a bunch of old ephemera and has lots of pictures. Very interesting's a brief synopsis:
At Frank Sinatra’s suggestion, Marilyn Monroe kept her life inside two filing cabinets—letters, invoices, financial records, and the mementos that meant the most to her. After her tragic death, in 1962, at the age of 36, the cabinets, together with an assortment of jewels, fur coats, and other personal belongings, were stashed away by the actress’s business manager, Inez Melson. This secret trove would remain virtually unknown to the world for more than four decades, until photographer Mark Anderson began an epic two-year project of documenting it. His photographs, made public for the first time, offer new insights into the life of Hollywood’s most iconic figure.

Look at all these prescriptions...poor thing - no wonder she was so out of it all the time! Here's the link for more:
