THE SECRET LIFE OF MARILYN MONROE
May 30, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Lifetime, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

MINISERIES PREMIERE: Part 1 of 2. Kelli Garner, star of the brief period series Pan Am, becomes the latest actress to stand in for perhaps the most famous cinematic sex symbol of them all. This two-part miniseries has Marilyn Monroe recounting her life, loves and traumas to her therapist, while we tag along watching the various flashbacks. Susan Sarandon co-stars as Norma Jean’s unstable mother, and other players include Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Joe DiMaggio and Stephen Bogaert as Arthur Miller. For the curious, but as with all biographies of this type, take them not just with a grain of salt – but with an entire salt lick. For a full review, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
