Synopsis

The first of two 1980 television movies about Marilyn Monroe, this version of her story, for which writer James Lee won an Emmy Award nomination, came from a chapter of Garson Kanin's popular behind-the-scenes-of-Hollywood book and covered the Monroe story from her days as an aspiring actress through her love affair with high-powered agent Johnny Hyde to the brink of stardom on the eve of his sudden death. It was the first of three self-contained films about the movies, dramatized from "Moviola," that aired initially on consecutive nights, each produced by Stan Margulies, directed by John Erman and photographed by Gayne Rescher.
