Marilyn Monroe – Schenk House (SH-03)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • Joseph Schenk was partners with Darryl F. Zanuck, together creating 20th Century Fox. After being convicted and serving time for tax evasion, Schenk returned to 20th Century Fox and mentored a young, up-and-coming Marilyn Monroe. Schenk remained Marilyn’s benefactor, but was unable to convince Zanuck to give her more roles of substance. This reality only fueled Marilyn’s desire to be free of Fox. During one Fall weekend, Schenk allowed Milton and Marilyn to stay at the guest villa of his Beverly Hills estate.Pin_it_button
