La mia settimana con Marilyn

Clark Colin

In 1956, fresh from Oxford, the 23-year-old Colin Clark (brother of maverick Tory MP and diarist Alan) worked as a humble 'gofer' on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that disastrously united Laurence Olivier with Marilyn Monroe. This is the story of when Clark escorted a Monroe desperate to escape from the pressures of stardom. How he ended up sharing her bed is a tale too rich to summarise! Clark's extraordinary experiences on and off set have now been turned into a major film starring Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh and Dominic Cooper.

Marilyn among friends

Shaw Sam & Rosten Norman

The photographer Sam Shaw introduced Norman Rosten to Marilyn Monroe in 1955. Their relationship grew : Marilyn's analyst, Dr Ralph Greenson, described Rosten as one of her "closest friends". She married another of his friends, Arthur Miller, and from then saw a great deal of Norman and his wife Hedda.
Photographer Sam Shaw met Monroe on the set of "Viva Zapata" when she was an out-of-work contract player. Shaw was to take many famous photographs of Marilyn, but he too became her friend and over many years took the kind of photographs that only friends can.
As her closest friends, both the author and the photographer are uniquely placed to reveal the real Marilyn. This book conveys its subject with greater authority, candour and, above all, affection than any previous book.
