Marilyn Monroe exhibition opens at Liechtenstein’s National Museum

An exhibition, Marilyn: the Strength behind the Legendary Monroe, or Marilyn: die starke Monroe, opens at the National Museum in Vaduz, Liechtenstein tomorrow and runs till November 1, 2015.
   The exhibition features 400 pieces from the private collection of Ted Stampfer, known as the largest collection of Marilyn Monroe items in the world, supplemented by those from other private collectors. Stampfer has been remembering the actress, whom he believes was underestimated during her lifetime, and the exhibition shows the private, ambitious and emancipated side of Marilyn.
   Monroe fought against the male domination of the film industry in the 1950s and negotiated better contract terms over her career, including establishing her own film production company. She also fought on behalf of minorities, battling to secure engagements for Ella Fitzgerald in a whites-only nightclub.
   The Museum says the exhibition is unique, and includes her clothing, accessories, beauty and styling products, personal documents, and photos and film footage. Most items originate from her estate.
