One of the greatest American cultural icons of the 20th century, Marilyn Monroe was much more than a movie star. Her popularity and cultural impact can only be compared to Elvis Presley and Mickey Mouse. Monroe defined what a sex symbol means and to this day is considered one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the silver screen. From high-profile marriages with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller to substance abuse, depression and anxiety, she went through everything in her short life of 36 years. Here is the list of top Marilyn Manroe movies you can’t miss.
