My Week with Marilyn - Colin Clark (2001)
I was glad that with this one that I had seen the movie first, which is often the wrong way round, but the story was much the same, except I think that the movie captured the youth of the author in a much fresher clearer way.
It is the true tale of Colin Clark, a young privledged young man who works for Sir Laurence Olivier on his production with Marilyn Monroe in the late 50s. As an assistant on the film, he finds himself becoming more involved with Ms Monroe, evetually spending a lost week with her.
Short and sweet, it an interesting glimpse of the crazy world surrounding this amazing woman.
