This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
On August 5, 1962, Life Magazine photojournalist Leigh Wiener was assigned to cover the sudden death of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated icons, Marilyn Monroe. This photo-essay of black and white images is an observance of the days surrounding the passing and funeral of a legend. In his words, illustrated with his images, Leigh Wiener recounts that mid-summer day from outside Marilyn’s Brentwood home, to inside the Westwood Mortuary where he gained entry, and finally scenes from her funeral at Westwood Village Cemetery.
First published in 1990, only 500 hardcopies of Marilyn: A Hollywood Farewell were printed. Less than half were signed by Leigh Wiener. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of her passing, 7410 Publishing presents this second edition available only in eBook format.
