1st July 1956 Marilyn and Arthur Miller were married in a traditional Jewish ceremony at the home of Arthur’s agent, Kay Brown. Lee Strasberg gave the bride away in front of 25 invited guests. Marilyn had previously converted to Judaism and promised to learn how to make noodles like Arthur’s mother. They had been married in a civil ceremony two days earlier.
Both entered the marriage with high hopes. Sadly, the union was dissolved five years later.
