"Norma Jean & Marilyn" is a 1996 made-for-TV biographical film produced by Home Box Office. The film featured Ashley Judd as Norma Jean Dougherty and Mira Sorvino as Marilyn Monroe. It was partially-based on "Norma Jean: My Secret Life With Marilyn Monroe" by actor Ted Jordan, who claimed to have had a years-long relationship with Monroe. The tagline for the highly-fictionalized film summarizes the plot: "Marilyn Monroe was our fantasy. Norma Jean was her reality." In dream-like scenes, Monroe and her former self appear together, with Norma Jean sometimes taunting Marilyn. It was nominated for 5 Emmy Awards, including for both lead actresses.
