Some Notes Regarding Marilyn, Joe, Lou And Others

August 12, 2018

Last Sunday was the exact 56 year anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death on Sunday August 5, 1962.

Ms. Monroe, such an underrated actress, especially regarding her comedic skills, was at one time married to Joe DiMaggio, whose 56 game hitting streak is among and arguably is baseball’s greatest record.

Another great record (I realized this listening to Ben Mankiewicz’ introduction of “The Pride of the Yankees” on TCM last night), Lou Gehrig’s 2130 consecutive games played lasted 56 years from the time of Lou’s last game in 1939 until Cal Ripken Jr. eclipsed the mark, with DiMaggio in attendance in 1995.
