Backyard © Provided by The Hollywood Reporter Backyard Just weeks before she died, Monroe was interviewed by Life magazine. Her home on Helena featured prominently in that interview.

Here is an excerpt from that interview: "Before starting what was to be no less than a six-hour talk, she wanted to show me her house which she had personally searched out and bought. Describing it earlier she exclaimed, '.. and it has walls.' She had refused LIFE any pictures of it, saying, 'I don't want everybody to see exactly where I live, what my sofa or my fireplace looks like … ' It was a small, three-bedroom house built in Mexican style, the first home entirely her own she had ever had. She exulted in it. On a special trip to Mexico, she had carefully searched in roadside stands and shops and even factories to find just the right things to put in it. The large items had not arrived - nor was she ever to see them installed. As she led me through the rooms, bare and makeshift as though someone lived there only temporarily, she described with loving excitement each couch and table and dresser, where it would go and what was special about it."

The commercials are on cruise control in the lead up to Easter.The ABC is at least taking its responsibilities seriously — in the first of the what seems to be a two week Easter ratings break by the commercials — by programming the return of Brush with Fame, Anh Do’s portrait interview series, and debuting the new sports comedy The Warriors.
