I don’t know much about him to really express a good opinion. However, his treatment of Marilyn during the making of The Prince and the Showgirl wasnt good at all. He was very kind to her before hand but that changed when they started working. He didnt take her seriously and he didnt like the way she was using “The Method” as her way of acting; he was pretty old school. He was directing her in a part that his wife had played alongside him so I think he wanted her to play it like Vivien Leigh did. After filming was over and he saw the film, he was able to appreciate her performance.

Hi, I'm not sure about something and I think you can help me. I was going to buy the biography of J. Randy Taraborrelli, but in the description of the bookstore said he had documents who prove her case with Bobby Kennedy and other things that made me a little confused now. His biography is the only translated in my country. Thanks and I love your blog! Your blog makes me love her and want to know more about her.

From what i understand, he clears up a lot of rumours about Bobby. He talks about how she didn’t have an affair with him and how he didn’t plan her murder that has been talked about in previous books. Unless the translation is awful, it should still be like how it has been described to me. I haven’t read it myself (yet!) but the friends of mine that have have enjoyed it! I’ve heard mostly positive things. Thank you xx
