Kenneth Branagh received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Laurence Olivier. Olivier was nominated for the same award for his role as Dr. Christian Szell in Marathon Man (1976).
In 1956, at the height of her career, Marilyn Monroe went to England to make a film with Sir Laurence Olivier. While there she met a young man named Colin Clark, who wrote a diary about the making of the film. This is their true story.
Greene tells Colin that he and Marilyn had an affair. This claim was made years after Marilyn and Greene had died, and has no basis in fact.
