As much emotional problems she had, it's impressive she could market herself back into the good graces of Hollywood. Very difficult to believe she offed herself with that kind of drive to succeed! TY Uk!
I heard from an avid fan there apparently there isn’t actually any evidence that there was a renewal of MM’s contract with the studio. He was a journalist in the 60’s, and who met and interviewed many stars, including Elizabeth Taylor many times, although he never did meet Marilyn Monroe, but he is a very reliable person to get the facts from.
She did have a monumental amount of courage though, to get as far as what she did. I don’t think she had it in her to survive though, due to the addiction to pills and deep psychological problems that were the reason for taking them. I don’t think she took her life deliberately though, but more like it was an accidental overdose.
