Patricia and Marilyn

Patricia is doing her History project..

I have decided to do my history end of year project on Marilyn Monroe. She is a very interesting character in movie history here is some information I have gathered about her :

* She was born on the 1st of June 1926 to Nee Morrinson in LA County Hospital.
* Her real name was Norma Jeane Baker.
* Her father was mentally ill so she was sent to a foster home and later was sent to many relatives.
* Her mother supposedly attempted to kidnap her from her foster home in a hand bag.
* She had a very strong acting career and is remembered today worldwide.
* She was introduced to drugs at a very young age and this eventually was the cause of her death : Due to this fact I named the title of my project ; 36 years of Drugs. A life taken ?
* On August 5th 1962 she died of an overdose of sleeping pills, possibly a suicide at the young age of 36.

Well done Patricia, it sounds a very interesting project.
