Marilyn’s friendship with a jazz legend is featured in the new documentary, Ella Fitzgerald: Just One of Those Things. The story of Marilyn helping secure a nightclub gig for the great singer is an inspiring one, and true, although sometimes over-simplified – April VeVea, author of MM: A Day In the Life, provides a definitive factual account on her Classic Blondes blog.
Meanwhile, one of Marilyn’s most accomplished photographers is also getting the documentary treatment in Elliott Erwitt: Silence Sounds Good. The hour-long film is coming soon to virtual cinemas, First Showings reports. (At Home With Elliott Erwitt, just 10 minutes long, can be viewed here.)
