Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1st, 1926, but baptized and raised as Norma Jeane Baker. After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. An actress, singer, model and showgirl she became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s. She received a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Some Like It Hot (1959). The final years of Monroe's life were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for being unreliable and difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a "probable suicide", the possibility of an accidental overdose, as well as the possibility of homicide, have not been ruled out.
