I got a cold chill. This girl had something I hadn’t seen since silent pictures.She had a kind of fantastic beauty like Gloria Swanson, when a movie star had to look beautiful, and she got sex on a piece of film like Jean Harlow.

Leon Shamroy, on MM’s 1946 screen test

When you look at Marilyn on the screen, you don’t want anything bad to happen to her. You really care that she should be all right…happy.

Natalie Wood

She was not the usual movie idol. There was something democratic about her. She was the type who would join in and wash up the supper dishes even if you didn’t ask her.

Carl Sandburg

Marilyn was an incredible person to act with…the most marvelous I ever worked with, and I have been working for 29 years.

Montgomery Clift

When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.

Clark Gable

Still she hangs like a bat in the heads of the men who met her, and none of us will ever forget her.

Sammy Davis, Jr.

She comes out of the dressing room Norma Jeane. When she stepped in front of the camera, she was Marilyn.

Lawrence Schiller

I just want to be wonderful.

Marilyn Monroe

Happy Birthday, Norma Jeane. (June 1, 1926–∞)
