January 18, 2017 — She was the ultimate blonde bombshell, the reigning sex symbol of the late 1940s and 1950s and one of America’s great cultural icons.
Despite the fact that her career as a movie star lasted slightly more than a decade, Marilyn Monroe is listed as the 6th greatest female movie star of all time by the American Film Institute.
When she died at the age of 36, in 1962, it was claimed that her death was from an overdose of barbiturates and her death was listed on the certificate as a probable suicide. Despite the fact that people who actually knew her have long disputed that idea, it was the accepted story for years.
But recently, previously classified documents dealing with the actresses’ life have been “de-classified” and the director Paul Davids has created a documentary, Marilyn Monroe Declassified, which sets out to disprove the accepted theory. It provides significant evidence that indicates that Marilyn Monroe was murdered.
Monroe had been under observation because of her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller, who was a left-leaning Jew; her later relationship with President John F. Kennedy also put her in a situation where she may have known things she was not supposed to. Both the CIA and the FBI kept her under surveillance, and it appears that they both attempted to conceal facts about the star’s death.
This feature documentary also gives a brief run-through of Monroe’s career as an actress and a model.
Marilyn Monroe Declassified is available on Blu-ray and DVD.
