Reframed: Marilyn Monroe on SBS – Reframed: Marilyn Monroe revisits the extraordinary story of a girl who sprang from nowhere to become the most famous woman in the world.

Narrated by Golden Globe-winning actress Jessica Chastain, it reveals a complex, fascinating woman who took on powerbrokers in Hollywood and courageously challenged the misogyny of 1950’s America, all while beating the odds to succeed in a man’s world. Marilyn’s story isn’t just the story of one woman – in many ways, it is the story of every woman.

Series One, Episode Two: Siren

Marilyn’s rise is nearly ruined when news breaks that she has posed nude for a calendar earlier in her career.

She uses this to her advantage to kick start a change in attitudes towards female sexuality.

Marilyn demonstrates her unique talent for comedy in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and reaches superstar status while using her celebrity to kick back against the gender pay gap.

Riding on her continued success she performs for American GIs in Korea, but her frustration with Fox boils over and she creates a plan to claim her independence.

Reframed: Marilyn Monroe – New Episode – Monday, 22 May at 9.30pm on SBS and SBS on Demand (4 Parts)
