Marilyn always appeared to be an old soul stuck in timeless beauty. The camera could not compete with her. Into the lens she commanded a world. She must have been some sort of goddess...But underneath the unearthly powers was the vulnerability. She could take you from seduction to darkness..
She spoke to the hidden places of all lonely hearts.

Great article, thanks, I've read Mailer's biography long ago, but never Gloria Steinem. Ted Jordan's Norma Jean: My Secret Life With Marilyn Monroe, is quite insightful also.
