The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes (2022)
Director: Emma Cooper
Appearances: Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, Joe DiMaggio, Jimmy Hoffa, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Peter Lawford
Tagline: The brighter the star, the darker the truth.
The Overview: Beware of spoilers…
Anthony Summers, who wrote the Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe, shares snippets of some of the 650 interviews he did while researching the book. The documentary uses actors/actresses to lip sync to the recordings. I found this distracting. It gave the movie a tabloid feel. I was hoping for some new information, but if you know Marilyn’s story as well as the most popular theories of her death, there’s nothing new here.
The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes earns 2 of 5 stars.
