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.

Very happy impressed by Garner
With all the new information that was released its AMAZING how strong of a woman she really was when people that she was just a dumb blonde.
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.
Excellent and highly entertaining film. I watched part one and part two back to back, and was glued to the screen - it kept me awake until nearly 2am! Kelli Garner was a revelation. She really got the viewer to invest in Marilyn’s extraordinary and troubled life. I hope she gets more work after this, she WAS the movie and WAS Marilyn.
Heartbreaking film in many ways, but one I’d highly recommend. Not your run of the mill Lifetime fodder. Fantastic!
