She was subjected to make-overs by those who manipulated her into someone entirely different from who she originally was. She suffered under the Hollywood mystic & was finally broken. Norma Jean was someone so very different from the “Marilyn” created . Reply fitzwilly December 30, 2012 Most of these photos were taken by a brilliant photographer named Andre de Dienes. Personally, the earlier images of MM are my favorite. An innocence glows in her face and he captured that inner beauty on film.
