On 5 August 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her Los Angeles home. Fifty years later, Kim Cattrall examines the enduring appeal of this seemingly immortal star.

The Hollywood star, and fellow blonde, uncovers what it is about Marilyn Monroe that has proved so eternally fascinating and asks if her ghost will ever be laid to rest.

Through film, books, image, pop and even opera, Kim explores the modern world's love affair with Norma Jeane. Contributors include the jazz pianist and singer Buddy Greco; novelist Andrew O'Hagan; and two of her photographers, Larry Schiller and George Barris.
