Marilyn Monroe, 1926-1962, born Norma Jeane Mortenson was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. The circumstances of her death have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a “probable suicide”, the possibility of an accidental overdose, as well as of homicide, have not been ruled out. From the book “We are all equal”, by Finn Nygaard.
