Holi Mari

Holi Mari reflects the final years of Marilyn Monroe’s life that were far from sacred and joyful and were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for unreliability and being difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of¬†barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a “probable suicide”, the possibilities of an accidental overdose or a homicide have not been ruled out.
