Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London, traces the life and career of Marilyn Monroe.

Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) is one of the most famous actresses and icons in popular culture. Her appearance in classic films like Some Like It Hot and her tragically short life has meant she remains a source of endless fascination.

In his talk Adrian Wootton OBE, CEO Film London, explores Monroe’s life on and off-screen with extensive clips and slides.

Ticket includes a complimentary drink. This talk lasts approximately 60 minutes and is followed by a separate screening of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Tickets for the screening are available here at £6 for Members.
