Morley, a drama critic and radio personality, is also an experienced biographer of (mostly female) Hollywood legends. The coverage here is more analytical and less conspiracy-oriented. He differentiates between Norma Jean the person and MM the sexy star; Joe DiMaggio loved the former but couldn't live with the latter. The appeal of playwright Arthur Miller, husband number three, is also discussed. The tone of this work, characterized by Morley's cultured British voice, raises it several notches above mere gossip.
