Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia

Considered one of the biggest female sex symbols of the 20th century, Marilyn Monroe is still being discovered by new generations. A look through retail outlets will reveal products designed with young adults in mind, such as wall hangings, clothing, and accessories.

Born as Norma Jean Mortenson, the pin-up-turned-actress changed her name to Marilyn Monroe at the beginning of her film career. After posing for magazines and advertising in the 1940s, Monroe turned her concentration to film, completing “The Asphalt Jungle” and “All About Eve” in 1950. In all, she made 29 films over her career, winning a Golden Globe in 1960 for the film, “Some Like It Hot.” She made countless public appearances, including singing a highly publicized version of "Happy Birthday To You" to President Kennedy at Madison Square Gardens in May 1962.

Conspiracy theories surrounding Monroe’s life and death seem to have propelled her overall stardom, as questions remain over her marriages, relationships, and upbringing. On the markets, her vintage photos, art, and memorabilia are bringing higher prices year after year.


Quick Facts

  • Monroe’s 30th film would have been, “Something’s Got To Give,” but she died prior to completing the set work
  • The first Playboy magazine was published in 1953, featuring Marilyn Monroe on the cover and centerfold. Approximately 54,000 copies were printed, selling for 50 cents each. Original copies are now selling for thousands of dollars each
  • Artist Andy Warhol’s paintings of Marilyn Monroe after her death in 1962 are considered some of the most valuable pieces of modern art in existence. Even some reprints have gained significant worth
