MARILYN MONROE: MY LITTLE SECRET by Tony Jerris Now Released in Audiobook
by BWW News Desk - May 22, 2014

Those were the words 12-year-old Jane Lawrence remembered when she was asked to head up the up-and-coming blonde starlet's fan club at 20th Century Fox under the supervision of studio head Darryl Zanuck. Jane was no stranger to movie sets or movie stars, being that her father, Sidney Lipsitch, headed RKO's legal department. She spent time with the likes of Robert Mitchum, Lucille Ball, Ethel Merman, Polly Bergen and Irving Berlin, but helping launch the career of one of the world's most legendary sex symbols was a task beyond Jane's wildest dreams. In author Tony Jerris' new audio book, “Marilyn Monroe: My Little Secret,” he explores Jane's working relationship with the actress and how it developed into a special friendship that lasted right up until Marilyn's untimely death on August 5, 1962. Told in Jane's voice, this is a story of an elderly woman reflecting upon on her fondest memories of the blue-eyed screen goddess and how she became a confidante of sorts, who Marilyn used to call “My little secret.” (more...)
