NOTES

"Her on-screen persona was basically sexless. In her most famous films, she was a cartoon, a parody of femininity. Paired with sexless leading men like David Wayne, Tommy Noonan, Tom Ewell, or as in 'Some Like It Hot,' men who were in drag and/or pretending to be impotent, Monroe was all display and no action. Her on-screen relations with the opposite sex were infantile and tentative . . . The legend of Monroe's screen sexuality is more accurately a myth. She was the perfect, pliable non-threatening female figure for the frightened '50s: no anger, no inner life, no control of her own sensuality." --Denis Ferrara writing in Talk magazine's special issue "An Oscar Odyssey, March 2001.
