“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” -Marilyn Monroe
The 50’s wouldn’t have been the same without Marilyn Monroe. She was one of the most popular actresses and models of the time, and remains an important popular culture icon today.
Monroe left behind a legacy as a beauty icon and a famous star in classical Hollywood cinema. Although Marilyn Monroe was typecast as a “dumb blonde” she appeared in many films throughout her career and even started her own film production company in 1954.
The American Film Institute has named Monroe the sixth greatest female screen legend in American film history. She is even included on the Smithsonian Institutes list of the 100 Most Significant Americans of All Time!
She married (and divorced) the famous Joe DiMaggio and the American playwright Arthur Miller. She is widely remembered for her struggles, as well as her successes.
Although she has passed, she left a lasting impression on the world. Not just by being successful in her career, but by creating a lasting public image in popular culture.
At Happy Time Café, we honor the memory of Monroe and the impact she had on American culture.
