Had she not died in 1962 at the hands of herself, or the FBI, or the CIA, or the Mafia or...well, the list goes on, Marilyn Monroe would have been 81 last Friday. Unbelievable!
Monroe might very well have taken to the grave with her an untold number of official secrets told to her by the Kennedy brothers.
However, a number of interesting tales of a sexual, conspiratorial and dark nature can be found in the blond bombshell's FBI file, which is reproduced in Celebrity Secrets - including tales of a secret film showing Marilyn giving some lucky fellow a blow-job; official interest in her marriage to lefty playwright Arthur Miller; phone-taps; Mexican commies; wild parties; and much more.
Still, at least she burned out when she still looked good and didn't end up as a wrinkled old trout.
