Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe's elopement in 1954 caused a sensation unlike any the American public had ever seen. Joe and Marilyn reveals the true inside story of these iconic figures whose love affair (and ensuing scandals) became Hollywood legend. Though their marriage lasted only nine months, they remained devoted to each other, even after death: DiMaggio had a half-dozen red roses delivered three times a week to her crypt for twenty years. Based on extensive archival research and personal interviews with Monroe and DiMaggio's family and friends, Joe and Marilyn offers great insight into a famously tragic romance.

If you are at all interested in reading the detail-saturated, inside story behind the rough and turbulent 9-month marriage that took place (back in 1954) between famed baseball hero, Joe DiMaggio, and famed movie-screen siren, Marilyn Monroe - Then this well-researched work of non-fiction, called "Legends In Love", will, most certainly, open your eyes up to a highly-publicized celebrity-union that was far from being "made-in-heaven".

Providing the ever-curios reader with all of the essential facts & figures - Author David Heymann weaves a truly engrossing, real-life tale of a volatile relationship between 2 clearly incompatible super-stars who really couldn't have been more the opposite to one another than night and day.

At the time of their marriage - Monroe was 28 and DiMaggio was 40.

Fascinating reading with the emphasis on Joe DiMaggio life with and without Marilyn Monroe.
