MAKING MARILYN

Genre: Drama
by ken Cameron, directed by Robin A. Paterson

"MAKING MARILYN" opens just after Marilyn Monroe's death in 1962. A young Canadian man, Scout, has been caught speeding down a deserted stretch of Los Angeles highway. As the suspicious policeman begins to ask probing questions, Scout flashes back to 1953 and his home in the remote town of Banff. A lonely teenager, Scout is ecstatic when he learns that the famous Marilyn Monroe will be coming to shoot her new movie The River Of No Return. An accidental meeting with the star herself leads to a friendship blossoming between the two. But the friendship soon turns into a mutual sexual attraction, and the teenage Scout begins to develop strong feelings for the much older Marilyn--feelings which ultimately lead to heartbreak and tragedy.
