Sobre o livro
To tie-in with a major film, starring Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh and Dominic Cooper. This edition combines Colin Clark's acclaimed The Prince, the Showgirl and Me and My Week with Marilyn. In 1956, fresh from Eton and Oxford, the 23-year-old Colin Clark (son of 'Lord Clark of Civilisation', brother of maverick Tory MP and diarist Alan) worked as a humble 'gofer' on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that disastrously united Laurence Olivier with Marilyn Monroe.
Forty years on, his account of this was chosen as book of the year by Jilly Cooper, Joan Collins and others. This is the story of when Clark escorted a Monroe desperate to escape from the pressures of stardom. Her new husband Arthur Miller was away, and the coast was clear for Colin to introduce her to the pleasures of British life.
How he ended up sharing her bed is a tale too rich to summarise! Clark's extraordinary experiences on and off set have now been turned into a major film starring Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh and Dominic Cooper, due for release in November 2011. * Includes an exclusive introduction from Simon Curtis, director of 'My Week with Marilyn'. * Includes an exclusive interview with screenplay writer, Adrian Hodges.
* Contains exclusive images of the cast of 'My Week with Marilyn' on set.
