The ghost of Marilyn's death gave a lavender edge to that dramatic American design of the Sixties, that long decade which did not end with the Battle of Michigan Avenue in Chicago, or the slaughter of Sharon Tate, but drove on* to the death of Jimi Hendrix, the suicide of Janis Joplin, and the shooting of George Wallace.
