Ella Fitzgerald & Marilyn Monroe. “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt …. she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night .... The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald

Marilyn Monroe with Ella Fitzgerald at the the Mocambo. A popular Hollywood night club at the time. That would not book Ella because of segregation. Marilyn told the manager that she would reserve a front row table every night Ella performed there.
