Diamonds Are Marilyn’s Best Friend
In 1953, Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Russell scored with the song, “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.” It was the hit number from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. But there was another big hit in Marilyn’s future. Actually a big hitter.
Just around the corner, there was a new romance waiting with one of American’s greatest sports heroes. But before love, disappointment. Marilyn had hoped that Oscar also preferred blondes. She had her fingers crossed that an Academy Award might be in her future.
No such luck...
