Lawrence Schiller

Biography

The themes of celebrity and scandal anchor much of Lawrence Schiller’s diverse body of work, which spans from photography and nonfiction writing to directing Emmy and Oscar-winning films including The Executioner's Song (1981), Peter the Great (1986), and The Man Who Skied Down Everest (1972). Schiller achieved early success as a photojournalist, publishing photographs of movie stars, athletes, and politicians in magazines and newspapers worldwide. His most iconic images capture a nude Marilyn Monroe filming a pool scene for the motion picture Something’s Got to Give, just a few months before her death in 1962. In addition to his memoir Marilyn & Me (2012), Schiller has published eleven books including New York Times bestsellers American Tragedy, Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, and The Executioner's Song, with his lifelong collaborator Norman Mailer.
