  • Description

    Titles read: "TRIBUTE TO MARILYN".

    Compilation of library footage pays tribute to film star / actress Marilyn Monroe shortly after her death.

    Several shots of a radiant Marilyn receiving the key to Warner Brothers studio from boss Jack Warner. Other stars glimpsed briefly include actor James Stewart and director Billy Wilder.

    On Arthur Miller's farm in Connecticut, United States of America, we see Arthur and Marilyn posing together for cameras after announcing they are to be married.

    Miller and Marilyn alight from aircraft at London Airport and walk across the tarmac. They enter the interview room and pose with Sir Laurence Olivier and his then wife, Vivien Leigh. Marilyn was in England to make the film of 'The Prince and The Showgirl' with Olivier.

    At the Odeon Leicester Square cinema in London we see Marilyn lined up with other stars to meet Queen Elizabeth II. MM is flanked by Victor Mature and Anthony Quayle. The Queen shakes hands with Marilyn who curtsies, then they chat.
