she took some stimulants. dexamyl, for her deep depression (probably made worse by heavy barbiturate consumption) and doses of dexedrine, common in those days, to boost mood and give her some energy.

i dunno. not to sound cold and callous, but...there were (and are) lots of pill heads out there, lots of drug addicts. marilyn monroe had some plastic surgery, on the nose and chin...i think she may have had the very early, very primitive version of breast implants (pre-saline...yikes!...), all to help achieve stardom. and...

she was 36. i read she had issues with aging, which...well, society has always made aging harder on women, it was harder on actresses back then than it is now, even...if an actress hadn't achieved much success by 30, there was always a younger actress around to get the best parts, etc.

so, i dunno. suicide is a terrible thing. her life seems to have been chaotic and controlled by male-dominated studios, male-dominated psychoanalysis (though one of her shrinks was female, that I know of...), a male-dominated world...

and the image she helped create, of a bleached blonde sex kitten, was kind of a double-edged sword. got her in the door, got her big movie deals, etc...

but she was 36 when she (somehow...) died. her Rx drug habit had helped damage her career, mightily. actresses back then made -a whole lot- less than comparable was far worse than now.

i dunno. sometimes, when i think of her, it almost seems like she did so much to recreate herself, to be glamorous and to not be average and ordinary...

and the life she ended up with probably wasn't what she imagined it would be, going into it, at a younger age. :-(
