My week with Marilyn by Simon Curtis( Visual )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1956, on honeymoon with her husband, the celebrated playwright Arthur Miller, Hollywood's most famous movie star, Marilyn Monroe, came to England to join the British theatre and film legend Sir Laurence Olivier in making the film The Prince and the Showgirl. That same summeer, the newly graduated Oxford student, 23-year-old Colin Clark, set foot on a filmset for the first time in his live. He aspired to be a filmmaker and found a job as a lowly production hand on the same film. Forty years later, he recounted his experiences in a diary-style memoir - but one week in Clark's account was missing. This is the story of that week: an idyll in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.--Container
