She was beautiful... "A legend was about to be born" In 1945 Norma Jeane Dougherty was working on factory assembly line when she was 'Discovered' by army photographer Private David Conover. As the first man to recognise her photogenic qualities he was stunned by her beauty. He encouraged her to take up modelling and at the age of 19 she was summoned to Hollywood to work as a cover girl. This is the story of the early years with archive footage of Marilyn as never seen before. It follows her meteoric rise to stardom; the discovery of Marilyn Monroe.
