Rock Hudson narrates this documentary about the film career of Marilyn Monroe. The screen goddess is shown in the 1949 film "A Ticket To Tomahawk" her screen debut, and ends in 1962 with the incompleted "Something's Got To Give" which was under production at the time of her death. Viewers follow the career of Marilyn and witness the transformation of a lonely orphan girl to internationally recognized sex queen. Curiously, the time period between "Bus Stop" in 1956 and her last film effort is conspicuously absent. The six year gap is an unforgivable, glaring omission in covering anyone's cinematic accomplishments, particularly for the magnitude of such a major star as Monroe.
