Music Video of the Day: Arthur Miller by GLÜME (2021, dir by Ryan McBride)


For your consideration, this dream of the past.

For the record, from what I understand, Arthur Miller did not treat Marilyn Monroe very well when they were married. And, while The Crucible and Death of a Salesman are both very good plays, a lot of his work was too didactic and heavy-handed to survive the test of time. (Even Death of a Salesman occasionally feels like it’s on the verge of turning into a parody of Clifford Odets.) Marilyn always felt like she had to struggle to live up to Miller’s intellectual reputation. Joe DiMaggio loves Marilyn though, in the end, he may have been too conventional in his outlook and lifestyle for her.

I don’t think Marilyn Monroe was murdered, though there are definitely some unanswered questions surrounding her death. I think she did kill herself and I think that the the way she was treated by the Kennedys was a contributing factor. I imagine that was can all agree that Marilyn deserved to live a happier life than she did.

Enjoy!
