"This combo was inspired by retro movies and musicals from the fifties and sixties, when visual approaches like Technicolor, CinemaScope and Panavision were the new thing. When dazzling mega stars appeared on the big screen, oozing with color and pizzazz, and made us dream, capturing our hearts and minds at just a glance.
Well, "some like it hot" and that is exactly what this combo is all about! Extra warm, saturated and juicy, ready to imitate an era of "happy-go-lucky" and "merry-go-rounds". The choice of Müller and Rijks definitely contributes to the nostalgic direction and though it is an unusual mix and not one of my favorites but in this case, with the right settings, works miracles. A dash of Apollo flash gives Norma its unique final touch.
This combo is dedicated to and named after Norma Jean, the young starlet that Hollywood set on the treadmill of success by changing her name. That’s how Marilyn Monroe was born, the ultimate hot idol worshiped by fans and devoured by the system...
"Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid."
This series was shot over a weekend, in a small town filled with sunny childhood memories of open air cinemas, Luna parks and the trouble-free vacation lifestyle. Go take this combo for your own amusement ride!"
