Ella Fitzgerald: “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. 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. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, & Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard".
