#MARILYN4EVER: A TRIBUTE TO MARILYN MONROE

ROY SCHATT | Marilyn Monroe, 1955

"My company was formed because I wanted to make better pictures, to improve my work, to secure my income and to help others make good pictures." - Marilyn Monroe

On January 7, 1955, Marilyn Monroe announced the formation of her own independent film company, Marilyn Monroe Productions. Her studio, 20th Century Fox, sued her for breach of contract. Marilyn rebelled against Hollywood and literally went on strike. When the studio realized her box office potential upon the release of ‘The Seven Year Itch’ they re-signed her and agreed to her unprecedented terms. Her new contract allowed her an incredible amount of creative control that was considered revolutionary for an actress at the time, and her rights to director and cinematographer approval set a standard for other stars to follow.
