Description

The co-producers discuss the legend of Marilyn’s white piano as a metaphor for her childhood. Discussed is the identity of her abuser, the woman who failed to protect her, and the impact of sexual abuse and childhood trauma on her life. Gary, Nina, and Randall also cover how Marilyn learns to protect herself in the male-powered entertainment industry and her meeting with studio mogul Harry Cohn at Columbia in 1948 when she attempts to negotiate her contract after completing Ladies of the Chorus.
