Marilyn Monroe Marries Arthur Miller……

June 29, 1956…..

The movie star Marilyn Monroe marries playwright Arthur Miller. Monroe’s popularity as a sex symbol and Miller’s reputation as an intellectual led to the headline “Egghead Weds Hourglass.” Monroe then converted to Judaism, which caused Egypt to ban her films. They would divorce five years later and Monroe would die 18 months after that.
