Marilyn Monroe ABC >> G >> Grauman's Chinese Theater
Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell were chosen to imprint their handprints and footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, California. This was a celebration of their film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 1954. I think this is one of Marilyn's biggest accomplishments and this was a happy time for her in her life. She and Jane became very good friends during the film and Marilyn was very happy to share this moment with one of her best friends.
❝ She’s a woman who was exploited, whom no one understood. I think that’s what eventually killed her. I think she was very vulnerable behind her sexy looks. She was so incredibly lovely, like a… baby. She was fresh, beautiful and pure, and very touching with her vulnerability. And I believe the people who surrounded her probably destroyed her.”
