Friday Aug 3 Read more: Fox News

An unseen and little known side of Marilyn Monroe is revealed in the new book 'The Essential Marilyn Monroe: 50 Sessions.' Marilyn Monroe may still be celebrated as the most iconic sex symbol in Hollywood's history, but one British biographer insists the blonde bombshell is a seemingly forgotten and unlikely feminist. Monroe, who died on August 5, 1962 at age 36, is the subject of a new book by Michelle Morgan titled "The Girl," which explores how Monroe attempted to take control of her image in Tinsel Town and even fought to get the iconic leading role in 1955's "The Seven Year Itch."
