Nearly all of the messages in my inbox just disappeared…did this happen to anyone else?

I know Clara Bow was a fan of Marilyn and I just found out her husband, Rex Bell, had an uncredited part as an Old Cowboy in The Misfits :)

Didn't Marilyn Monroe also travel to Korea to perform for soldiers?

Yes, I forgot to mention that how silly of me. Thank you.

Did Marilyn visit Norway or Sweden?

No—outside of the U.S. she only visited Canada, England, Japan, Korea and Mexico.

What Marilyn biographies would you reccomend? Excluding conspiracy theories or at least are not entirely focused on them.
