Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe tells the untold story of the world’s most famous sex symbol and uncovers many closely-guarded secrets. The outside world never truly sees the real Marilyn, a woman so different from her public persona. While she reveled in her stardom, she never could control her inner demons and the onslaught of mental illness she inherited from her mother Gladys (Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon) – a woman she loves, hates and desperately wants to save. Although her movie studio told the world that Marilyn’s mother was dead, it is the great secret of Marilyn’s life that Gladys remained a vital and troubling part of her life. Still, as Marilyn soldiers on, she gives the performance of her life, successfully hiding her darkest secrets from the world.

Kelly Garner inhabits the role unlike anyone I’ve ever seen

I’m a huge Marilyn Monroe fan, but I bought this expecting it to be on par with most other Lifetime movies (horribly acted, barely scripted, poor production value)…but this one has been really, really good.

But the real revelation is Kelly Garner. I’d never heard of her before, but dayum. It’s not like she’s “playing” Marilyn…it’s as if she IS Marilyn. Hope this opens some doors so we can see more of her.



The series is well made, however Garner's voice is very very irritating. Presumably in reality Marilyn Munroe only spoke in her signature voice when performing on and off the screen for the public, but hopefully NOT 24/7 in her private life!!!

the secret life of marilyn monroe

who knows anyone’s life. This is just another morbid tale of a woman who’s suffered and people who feel the need to write about it. How about “ lets find something new to watch”? It just had no appeal to me and the actress doesn’t even look like her. I did not find it entertaining. Just another whitney houston story thats should just have been left alone. But i guess people want to make money on other peoples misery. whats new. :(
