This chapter explores the 'separate entities' that are Terence Rattigan's play and screenplay, by distinguishing the strength of the theatre Separate Tables , and by trying to locate the distinction and peculiarity of the film, which earned two Oscars in It shows how some interesting problems of censorship and homosexuality arose in Rattigan's time. All Rattigan's success as writer in Separate Tables , the shift in the tectonic plates of British theatre after the Look Back in Anger watershed of swiftly cast him to the sidelines.

The notebooks and jottings of Marilyn Monroe reveal a sensitive, cerebral character with a poetic soul. One of the reasons why Marilyn Monroe remains such a potent and visible icon of beauty and glamour is because she never grew old in front of the cameras. Unlike her contemporaries Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Jane Russell, she has been crystallised as an image of perfection: a concoction of fluffy white blonde hair, sleepy-lidded eyes, and a dazzling smile that appears both seductive and carefree. Just how carefree she really was, however, is a longstanding cultural obsession that today arguably exceeds the interest in her film performances. Biographers and journalists have detailed stories of addictions and psychiatric illnesses, which have all contributed to the legend of Monroe as a tragic victim: a girl born on the wrong side of the tracks, with a childhood in and out of foster homes, and an adulthood of exploitation by the men she craved affection from and who eventually led to her lonely, mysterious death. View image of Marilyn Monroe in In , however, the publication of her personal papers revealed a far more contemplative and poetic Monroe, evidenced in her handwritten poems, letters and journal entries.
