"What I particularly liked about Marilyn was that she didn’t act like a movie star. She was down to earth. Although she was then 28, she looked and acted like a teenager. Sure, she was beautiful and sexy, but there was an almost childlike innocence about her. I was most impressed that Marilyn was always polite and friendly to everyone on the set. She was no phony or snob."
- George Barris on his first impressions of Marilyn.
