MARILYNN MONROE MARRIED A COMMUNIST AND WAS 'WITHIN THE COMMUNIST ORBIT'
|Being watched: Marilyn Monroe and her husband, playwright Arthur Miller were both suspected of communist activities by the FBI|
Hollywood ties to Communism then, like today, are profound. It was Communists that established the Actors Screen Guild. Listen for the communist infested media right now to use Alinksy tactics of ridicule when anyone speaks of Monroe or anyone in Hollywood or anywhere in America as a Communist. Some 50-odd years later, we can see all that communism has accomplished. Much of that accomplishment now lies at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Another large dose in the major media and blanketed largely by our Universities.
Last note, you gotta love the story the FBI is selling about how they have "lost" other Marilyn Monroe files. Okay. We are all buying that bull aren't we? - W.E.
The FBI's secret file on Marilyn Monroe: Document that shows agency kept track of intimate details about actress
The caller said Miller's marriage to Monroe during a Jewish ceremony less than a months earlier was a 'coverup.'
Miller, the man said, 'was still a member of the CP (communist party) and was their cultural front man.'
The FBI has long made portions of its documents about Monroe public, but most of them are heavily redacted.
However, the FBI claims it has lost its files on the actress and cannot release them.
Finding out precisely when the records were moved - as the FBI says has happened - required the filing of yet another, still-pending Freedom of Information Act request.
The most recent version of the files is publicly available on the bureau's website, The Vault, which periodically posts FBI records on celebrities, government officials, spies and criminals.
The AP appealed the FBI's continued censorship of its Monroe files, noting the agency has not given 'any legal or factual analysis of the foreseeable harm that might result from the release of the full records.'
Monroe's star power and fears she might be recruited by the Communist Party during the tenure of longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover led to reports being taken on her activities and relationships, including her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller.
Monroe's file begins in 1955 and mostly focuses on her travels and associations, searching for signs of leftist views and possible ties to communism. The file continues up until the months before her death, and also includes several news stories and references to Norman Mailer's biography of the actress, which focused on questions about whether Monroe was killed by the government.
There have been two major government investigations into Monroe's demise - the original inquiry immediately after her death and another effort by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office in 1982. The second inquiry, released in December 1982, reviewed all files available investigative reports, including files compiled by the FBI on her death. The records, the DA's office noted, were 'heavily censored.'
That mention intrigued the man who performed Monroe's autopsy, Dr. Thomas Noguchi. While the DA investigation concluded he conducted a thorough autopsy, Noguchi has conceded that no one will likely ever know all the details of Monroe's death. The FBI files and confidential interviews conducted with the actress' friends that have never been made public might help, he wrote in his 1983 memoir 'Coroner.'
'On the basis of my own involvement in the case, beginning with the autopsy, I would call Monroe's suicide "very probable,"' Noguchi wrote. 'But I also believe that until the complete FBI files are made public and the notes and interviews of the suicide panel released, controversy will continue to swirl around her death.'
