Despite what I said about Marilyn Monroe, she does seem to have acknowledged the Hollywood machine as it was and still is. To quote: “In Hollywood a girl's virtue is much less important than her hairdo. You're judged by how you look, not by what you are. Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty?” With insightful comments like that and her biography being what it is I find it astonishing that there are no extras. Fox, what do you think you're playing at? A few documentaries; some celebs talking of her influences; who was she on the phone to when she died? - would have made this set much more palatable. As it stands, though, Marilyn Monroe Collection Vol1 seems underwhelming.
