FILE - In this Wednesday, March 14, 2012, file photo, attorney Wendy Murphy poses for a photo in the law library at the New England School of Law in Boston. Alabama officials said they're forming a task force to address concerns about private information about victims and others being posted to a state website for court records. Alabama’s crime victims’ rights law states that addresses, phone numbers and “other related information” about victims will not be included in public records. “You’re saying in writing that your personal information will be protected, and in fact it’s not true,” Murphy said. “To tell a victim they have a right that’s not enforceable is, I think, the ultimate betrayal.” (AP Photo/Elise Amendola, File)

MarilynMonroe

MarilynMonroe

Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in 1962. She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon. Monroe's troubled private life received much attention. She struggled with substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. She had two highly publicized marriages, to retired baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, both of which ended in divorce. On August 5, 1962, in the middle of filming ‘Something's Got to Give’ she died at age 36 from an overdose of barbiturates at her home in Los Angeles.
