Norma Jeane Baker didn't really die on that day, August the 5th 1962, 54 years ago, like everyone keeps saying she did... For is there anyone more immortal than Marilyn Monroe? The star of all stars? Hers is the name that became legend and lives on every day, a name synonymous with fame, glamour, and super stardom.

Like love, there's something in Monroe's legacy that will always evade capture.
