One thing about Norma Jeane Mortenson that gets passed over is that her first job in front of the camera was doing a photo shoot for Ronald Reagan
during the Second half of the World War (ie WWII). At the time Ronald Reagan was head of the First Motion Picture Unit. This unit created many of the
films for US military instructions as well as approving films for Public consumption during the war. They also created propaganda and created
falsified news stories to feed Americans about the war effort.
It's been speculated that the Historical views on the War were shaped by this unit. That's a very interesting fist used to control a narrative isn't
Something else about Norma Jeane, she wasn't going to be in the photos taken at the aircraft company, but she did provided the photographer an "Extra

Little story about how I know this. An old guy in my grandparents neighborhood worked under Reagan during the war and would tell the most
inappropriate stories. He used to say that people need to know the truth about it. In the 1990's when he died, some people came to his house and
removed a bunch of boxes then set fire to the place. His widow lived at my grandparents house until their kids came from the east coast to pick her
up. She refused to watch the TV or see any movies, calling most of the people in those classic movies form the 50's trash and other named. Before she
was picked up by her kids, she showed me how to make a basic radio out of garbage from the junk drawer. She said she learned in in the OSS. I didn't
ask about that.
Hey speaking of Hugh Hefner, in an interview he said he got the idea for Playboy during the war while in Italy. There was a rumor back in the 70's
that he really got the idea from his connections he made while in the Army. One of those connections was Ronald Reagan. This was the real reason why
Playboy's first issue had Marilyn Monroe in it.
