Monroe, you may recall, was only 36 when she died in 1962 and, for a time, her individual films were available at a hefty price.

Now, some are available as part as a seven-disk Blu-ray boxed set collection, packaged for less than $100.

There are some marvelous titles here, including How To Marry A Millionaire, River of No Return, and The Seven Year Itch.

In the 50 years since Marilyn died, there have been countless biographies, novels, and plays — even her own ghostwritten autobiography, published posthumously.

One of the most recent biographies of this entertainment legend is by feminist historian Lois Banner: Marilyn: The Passion and the Paradox.
