As we we twirl our forks, we might recall that it was on this date in 1956 that Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist Arthur Miller and silver screen icon Marilyn Monroe were wed.  They held a press conference at Miller’s house in Roxbury, Connecticut, whose local newspaper had dryly announced the day before, “Local Resident Will Marry Miss Monroe of Hollywood,” adding, “Roxbury Only Spot in World to Greet News Calmly.”  Once the 400 pressmen had gone away, the couple sneaked off to the Westchester County Court House in nearby White Plains, where they were married shortly before 7.30 pm. The ceremony lasted just over four minutes; the marriage, just over four years.
