No other actress has ever had the notoriety and fame or stirred the emotions quite like Marilyn Monroe. She was a legend in her own time and that legend has only grown since her untimely death. Not only was her rise to fame epic, but her personal life was a tale fit for the silver screen filled with torrid love affairs that included a president, drugs, scandal, tragedy, conspiracy and a mysterious death. Such a tumultuous life is hard to completely snuff out and perhaps Marilyn Monroe’s spirit continues to live on in the afterlife. Not just in our memories, but as a spirit still walking among us. Moment in Oddity features the Tarim Mummies and This Day in History features the Great New Orleans Fire of 1788.
