Classic Icons: Mamie Van Doren Vs Marilyn Monroe

[tweetmeme source=”erotixx” only_single=false] Two blondes in the same era but oh such a different career, Mamie got stuck with some awful movie roles (Francis the Talking Mule) while Marilyn got some amazing parts.

Either way, I do like them both a lot and don’t know who to choose as a favourite so both of them on the same page can’t be all bad…

MAMIE VAN DOREN MARILYN MONROE
Mamie Van Doren (born February 6, 1931) is an American actress and sex symbol. On January 20, 1953, Van Doren signed a contract with Universal Studios. The studio had big plans for her, hoping she would bring the same kind of success that 20th Century Fox had with Marilyn Monroe, the reigning sex symbol of the era.Van Doren starred in several bad girl movies that later became cult films. She also appeared in some of the first movies to feature Rock & Roll music and became identified with this rebellious style, and made some rock records.
Many of Van Doren’s film roles showcased her ample curves, and her on screen wardrobe usually consisted of tight sweaters, low-cut blouses, form-fitting dresses, and daring (for the era) swimsuits. While she and other blonde bombshell contemporaries as Cleo Moore, Sheree North, Jayne Mansfield, and Diana Dors did not attain the same level of superstar status as Marilyn Monroe, Van Doren did become a very famous star and notable Hollywood sex symbol.

She is still alive and kicking, still doing photoshoots, check out the last picture of her now… damn…

Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, singer, and model. After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946.The typecasting of Monroe’s “dumb blonde” persona limited her career prospects, so she broadened her range. She studied at the Actors Studio and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions. Her dramatic performance in Bus Stop was hailed by critics, and she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Some Like it Hot. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a “probable suicide”, the possibility of an accidental overdose, as well as the possibility of homicide, have not been ruled out. In 1999, Monroe was ranked as the sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.

Amazing actress and bloody gorgeous…
