"East of Eden" premiere

March 9, 1955 (New York)

        Marilyn consented to be an usherette at the Actor's Studio benefit and world premiere of East of Eden, starring James Dean. With the news of Marilyn's participation the benefit was an instant sellout. The magic name of Monroe caused a run on tickets, which were being scalped at triple their sales price. One of the crowd at the Astor Roof who was anxiously waiting to see the usherette was Arthur Miller, who has attended the Actor's studio benefit with his sister, actress Joan Copeland. Marilyn had been very much on Miller's mind.

      
There was a long line of people that wrapped around onto Park Avenue, fans who had cameras and autograph books awaiting the Monroe image and signature.With her limousine sitting at the curb, what had been arranged for the more ambitious fans was that when Monroe came down in the elevator these people would be allowed to go one at a time to the elevator door and either take a snapshot or obtain an autograph.

      
She went onto the premiere, and the word quickly spread throughout Times Square that "Marilyn Monroe is over at the Astor Theatre!" Soon people in the thousands picked up that information along Broadway. Marilyn was going to a post pemiere party at the Astor Roof atop the Astor Hotel, directly across the street from the movie theatre.

Person to Person

April 8, 1955 (Connecticut)
(Leave your comments, please)

       Person to Person was an immensely popular television program in the United States that ran from 1953 to 1961. Well-respected news reporter Edward R. Murrow hosted it, interviewing celebrities in their homes. Guest included then Marilyn Monroe at the Connecticut home of Marilyn´s business associate, Milton Greene. They asked -and were granted- permission to take candid snapshots of Hollywood´s nº 1 siren for their own files. Marilyn assumed a succession of beguiling poses, shutters clicked steadily for two hours.

       In 1953, Murrow launched a second weekly TV show — a series of celebrity interviews entitled Person to Person. Just as Murrow had nearly single-handedly pioneered TV news journalism, with Person to Person he also set the standard for celebrity interviews, producing a format that is still followed.
