Marilyn Monroe - I Wanna Be Loved by You
('Some Like It Hot', 1956). Download it HERE.

... You're STILL the standard.

After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Marilyn Monroe began her career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946.

Early movie roles were minor, but her performances in "The Asphalt Jungle" and "All About Eve" (both 1950) were well received.

By 1953, Monroe had progressed to leading roles. Her "dumb blonde" persona was used to comedic effect in such films as "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), "How to Marry a Millionaire" (1953) and "The Seven Year Itch" (1955).

Limited by typecasting, Monroe studied at the Actors Studio to broaden her range, and her dramatic performance in "Bus Stop" (1956) was hailed by critics, and she received a Golden Globe nomination. Her production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, released "The Prince and the Showgirl" (1957), for which she received a BAFTA Award nomination and won a David di Donatello award. She received a Golden Globe Award for her performance in "Some Like It Hot" (1959). (Wikipedia)
