The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe: Part 1 Review!

Last night was the premiere of the Lifetime Two-Part Movie of The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe. The story focuses on the transformation of Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe, while bringing about the unknown story of Marilyn’s mother Gladys’ mental illness.

First, let me say that Kelli Garner is enchanting! She portrays Marilyn so well! Kelli has Marilyn’s waif-y, sweet voice down perfectly. As far as looks, I’m very convinced! While no one can look exactly like Marilyn, Kelli has the essence needed to portray Marilyn’s beauty & vulnerability.

Second, the costumes, hair, & makeup! I never put a lot of stock into Lifetime movies. Let’s be honest. Many times they are inaccurate, as well as poorly made. But The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe has so many nicely done scenes! Everything seems so accurate & real! I mean, the pictures speak for themselves!

I amΒ beyond impressed with this movie so far! The second part airs tonight at 8pm. Let me know if you plan on tuning in!
