Marilyn Monroe’s most defining role was in the movie "The Seven Year Itch", which contained the famous scene involving her skirt being blown up by an air blast from a subway vent. Marilyn Monroe's notable films include: "All About Eve", "Bus Stop", "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", "Some Like it Hot", and "The Misfits" (this was her last film, and interestingly, it was Clark Gable's last as well).
Marilyn Monroe who was much more intelligent than she was given credit for, enjoyed politics and political conversation and intrigue, was romantically linked to both President John F. Kennedy and some suggest to Bobby Kennedy as well. Marilyn Monroe was married to playwright Arthur Miller and later to baseball great Joe Dimagio, who continued to profess his undying love for her until many, many years after her death.

A few interesting facts about some of
The death of Marilyn Monroe never resulted in a court case, so much of the "evidence" has never been subjected to a judge or jury. Many significant questions linger about the death of the famous actress. Here are some of the most glaring:
~ Why did Robert Kennedy deny being in
~ If Marilyn died from an overdose of pills, why were none found in her stomach? Dr. Thomas Naguchi, who performed the autopsy for LA County, found not a trace in her stomach.
~ Who wiretapped Marilyn's house, and why? It wasn't until new owners purchased the home in 1972 that this was discovered. The new owners hired a contractor to replace the roof, and the contractor discovered a sophisticated eavesdropping and telephone tapping system that covered every room in the house. The components were not commercially available in 1962, but were, in the words of a retired Justice Department official, "standard FBI issue".
~ What happened to the tapes made from this surveillance?
~ What happened to Marilyn's red diary, which reportedly contained intimate details of her affairs with the Kennedy brothers, and her dealings with Frank Sinatra? The book was present at the death scene, but vanished mysteriously from the coroner's office. It has never resurfaced.
~ Why was the bedroom door locked from the outside, which Marilyn could not have done herself? Who locked that door?
~ Why did Jack Clemmons, the first policeman to arrive at the scene, find Murray, the housekeeper, washing Marilyn's sheets at ?
~Why did his report state that rigor mortis had fully set in by the time he arrived?
~Why did his report describe the scene as a "homicide"?
~ Why did Marilyn's housekeeper and her doctor wait several hours after Marilyn was dead to notify police and summon an ambulance?
If the actress truly did commit suicide, she did not do so by swallowing pills, as the autopsy fully shows. Therefore, the official conclusion is disproved by the coroner's report. Suicide is not even a possibility, leaving only two solutions: Her death was an accident - or it was a murder.
Evidence tampering and deliberate lies by everyone from the
In those pre-Clinton days, the Presidency was above all reproach - and a sex scandal would have had disastrous consequences. Hot-headed Bobby Kennedy was likely sent to
Based on what evidence remains, we will never know what really happened the night Marilyn Monroe died, but it is safe to say that the suggestion that she killed herself is pretty much disproved, so if she did not kill herself then who did?
