Description: Ralph Roberts, actor, masseur, and former Pentagon liaison, could frequently be found in the kitchen of Lee Strasberg’s NYC apartment on Central Park West. One pleasant spring morning he by chance met Marilyn. Not the turned-on public persona of Marilyn Monroe he had crossed paths with in the past, but the honest, casual Marilyn who existed outside the public eye. Thus set in motion the beginnings of a deep friendship that forever changed Ralph, and unquestionably altered the course of his life. The next several years saw him in the Nevada desert with Montgomery Clift and Clark Gable, at the NYC apartment of Lester Markel, grilling at Frank Sinatra’s hilltop home, and on the phone with President Kennedy. Ralph saw Marilyn almost daily, and served as a sympathetic ear and a close friend. He was fiercely protective of his friend and her privacy. This book is a collection of Ralph’s recollections, and a rare and intimate view of Marilyn as the person she was when the cameras were off. Years after her untimely passing, fed up with the many falsehoods printed about his friend, and with the encouragement of Lee Strasberg and May Reis, Ralph set out his honest account of Marilyn Monroe’s last years.
This book is Ralph’s chronicle of his time with Marilyn Monroe from 1959 until her untimely death in 1962. Ralph recounts his behind the scenes experiences with Marilyn and her many circles of friends, giving you an inside look at the deeply layered and very busy Marilyn as she prepared for the next phase of her life – a phase that tragically never came. Ralph gives insight into her thinking through good times and bad. He presents an optimistic and talented woman who not only did great things but was poised to do so much more. Ralph attempts to provide clues as to why events happened as they did, not just for the reader but as a means of coping with the untimely loss of his dear friend Marilyn.
