Episode 237. Marilyn Monroe

The Rest is History 2


Historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook begin their podcast by justifying talking about Marilyn Monroe on a history podcast by arguing that she is "the most iconic of all Hollywood stars", that she still has considerable "pop culture traction", is a symbol of 1950s America, and because of the film Blonde (2022).

Tom Holland & Dominic Sandbrook wonder about how much we “really know” about Monroe, even though much has been written about her (and there are 2 documentaries just this year).
