In a heartbreaking Oct. 9, 1954, letter from Yankee legend DiMaggio, her segundo husband, he begs her to come back início three days after she announced to the world that she was divorcing him.

"Marilyn, I keep leitura reports about you being sick and naturally I'm concerned … I amor you and want to be with you. There is nothing I would like better than to restore your confidence in me so that I can help you regain your once healthy self.

"My coração dividido, dividir even wider seeing you cry in front of all these people and looking as though you were ready to collapse at any second."

He ends the letter por saying, "I can tell you, I amor you, sincerely – way deep in my heart, irregardless of anything. Will you call me tonight if you should receive this letter por then? It will be happily received."

Says Nolan, "It's such a heartfelt, honest letter. Of course he wants her back but his first and number one concern unselfishly is her welfare. He is worried about her. That's a true amor there."
