August 5, 1962

On this day in 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her bedroom from a drug overdose.

Although she is probably most famous for her blonde bombshell image and her comedic roles, Monroe starred in more musicals than any other type of film.

Monroe performed ten shows for the troops in Japan in 1954, and who could forget her notorious rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ that she sang for U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
