Storyline

An account of the life and career of Marilyn Monroe, one of Hollywood's most famous and glamorous movie stars. Her sad and difficult childhood is recounted, including her mother's breakdown and her life with unsympathetic foster parents. After being "discovered" by Hollywood, Monroe endured many insecurities and problems that came along with a world that called her a "goddess", but saw her as a sex object. Although her movie roles reveal a sense of humor, warmth, and talent, her life continued-with three failed marriages, addiction to drugs and alcohol, and a tragic, controversial death. Interviews with actress Sheree North, Gloria Steinem, Donald Spoto and Monroe's first husband offer information and reflections. Written by Tiff Banks

Trivia

This 1994 episode was the usual one hour. Earlier on June 10 there had been a different Monroe biography named Behind the Legend. In 2002 during "The Good Die Young" week A&E apparently made a combination episode from these two of 1994, using this Mortal Goddess title. That was also issued as a DVD with a length of 1:32.
