About Marilyn Monroe:
“Marilyn decided she had to go out to get some shopping, so she took me with her. She wore a crazy disguise- dark wig and dark glasses, and people were looking because of it. She walked like Marilyn but didn’t look like her. There was a homeless man, and Marilyn walked right up to him, not at all afraid. “Things are not going well at the moment, are they?” she said. “No, they’re not.” he said. She opened her purse and gave him $5 before walking on”. -Curtice Taylor, son of ‘The Misfits' producer Frank Taylor
