My Week With Marilyn Summary
Early in the summer of 1956, American film star Marilyn Monroe set foot on British soil for the first time. On honeymoon with her husband, the celebrated playwright Arthur Miller, Monroe came to England to shoot "The Prince and the Showgirl." That same summer, 23-year-old Colin Clark set foot on a film set for the first time in his life. Newly graduated from Oxford, Clark aspired to be a filmmaker and found a job as a lowly production hand on the set of "The Prince and the Showgirl." Forty years later, he recounted his experiences of the six-month shoot in a memoir entitled, "The Prince, the Showgirl and Me." But one week in Clark's account was missing. It wasn't until years later that Clark revealed why. In a follow-up memoir entitled, "My Week with Marilyn," he recounted the true story of one magical week he spent alone with the world's biggest star the week he spent with Marilyn.
