But when his sister Iris (Marilyn Monroe) is trapped underground in a cave-in, one of the big businesses in Blake's sights comes to her aid throwing him into a moral dilemma. 'The Marilyn Monroe Story' charts the transformation of former forces sweetheart Norma Jean into the Hollywood legend that was Marilyn.
