Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 - August 5, 1962)

She surpassed so many "more experienced" actresses, but didn't know it.

People had so many images of her, but she never seemed to find an image for herself. The public sucked too much out of her and then she was gone, much like a beautiful sand castle when it's washed away by the incoming tide. Did Arthur Miller get through to her true persona? We'll never know. And not knowing makes her all the more alluring. Sad.
