Original bombshell Marilyn Monroe, the actress whose tumultuous marriages, rumored presidential trysts, and untimely death have made her a cult icon, spent her life wandering from residence to residence, living in at least 43 homes in her 36 years. (She only bought one house—the one she died in.) The apartments and summer estates are valuable supporting roles in the life of Norman Jean Mortenson, telling a story from infancy and foster care through three marriages and into superstardom. In honor of her birthday, which is on Sunday, all 43 homes are mapped, below. Have a look.
