MARILYN MONROE - SYN 057 - UPC - 874757005720 - B000JMK6W6 "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" CD with "Home Town Story" DVD CD with bonus DVD Feature Film
Marilyn Monroe never actually recorded an album in her lifetime, but most of her movies featured her singing at least one song. And so it was inevitable that after her untimely death in August 1962 at age 36, someone would compile those songs and put them out on record. Monroe is the perfect Hollywood caricature of the sexy mama, every syllable she sings practically dripping with desire. Fellow pinup queen Jane Russell joins her on "When Love Goes Wrong," from 1953's "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".
The closing track on this disc is the notorious "Happy Birthday" that Monroe sang to President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden for his 45th birthday party in May 1962. Home Town Story - 1951 - Directed by Arthur Pierson -DVD
