The Marilyn Monroe Mystery: The Unheard Tapes

Netflix, Wednesday
Marilyn Monroe was found dead at home in Los Angeles on August 4, 1962. She was 36 years old. As is America’s penchant, the star’s death was “shrouded in mystery” and therefore ripe for conspiracy theories. Unfortunately, those rumors have all but eclipsed a remarkable career. Though Monroe was typecast as a “dumb blonde,” her mix of wit and tenacity was as multifaceted as her enduring legacy. While her death was ruled a suicide, there were unresolved issues. In 1982, LA rulers decided to reopen the case. Compiling her final weeks, days and hours through previously unreleased footage by those who knew her best, this film sheds light on Monroe’s complicated life and offers a new perspective on that fateful night.
