THE MAKING OF A FILM, A FRIENDSHIP AND A FATAL ATTRACTION!
What would happen if you were pulled into a twisted Cinderella love story with Marilyn Monroe as your fairy godmother? Plenty.
Imagine this: Penny Parker, a curvy dime-store cashier, longs for a best girlfriend. When she wins a contest, she gets one: Marilyn Monroe. She’ll be the on-set assistant to the iconic star for eight precious days during the filming of Some Like It Hot in 1958. Penny’s black-and-white life turns Technicolor as she becomes part of Marilyn’s world of smoldering secrets, sinister strangers and jaw-dropping bombshells.
A TINSELTOWN TEMPTRESS AND A SMALL-TOWN SPINSTER…
The emotional whirlwind uncovers Penny’s confusing attraction to childhood buddy, Frankie Holland. And in what could be a happily ever after moment, Hollywood’s smartest dumb blonde steps in to play fairy godmother to her newfound—and unlikely—Cinderella.
…UNCOVER THE TRUE MEANING OF FRIENDSHIP!
Penny sneaks Marilyn out of the famed Hotel del Coronado near San Diego and into the real world. With the help of old friends and new—and a ghost or two—Penny discovers there’s a ruthless killer on the loose who has Marilyn in the crosshairs. Together, Penny and Marilyn discover how hearts can sometimes see what eyes cannot.
Pure movie magic that’s as entertaining as a three-martini lunch with the gals, My Friend Marilyn intertwines history and myth to tell a tale of acceptance, friendship and love.
