Atlantis – Who killed Marilyn?: advances

A significant anniversary fell on August 4th: the 60th anniversary of the disappearance of Marilyn Monroe. Born in Los Angeles on June 1, 1926 under the name of Norma Jeane Mortenson Baker, she debuted on the big screen in 1947 and a few years later came the consecration: 1953 represented the turning point, with feature films such as “Niagara”, “How to marry a billionaire” and, above all, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” by Howard Hawks. In the following years she starred in cult films and was directed by great directors: she counts for all Billy Wilder, with whom she shot “The Wife’s on Vacation” and the masterpiece “Some like it hot”.

Cinema and entertainment aside, Marilyn lived an unhappy life, made up of failed relationships (like those with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller), acquaintances that remained partly secret (John Fitzgerald Kennedy), three abortions. All this was recently told – in a fictional and provocative form – by the questionable film “Blonde”, directed by Andrew Domikik for Netflix and with Ana De Armas as the protagonist.
Marilyn Monroe was found dead at her home in Brentwood (Los Angeles) on August 5, 1962, at the age of thirty-six, killed by an overdose of barbiturates. However, there are too many things left unresolved and unclear.

During the new episode of “Atlantis”, broadcast today 23 November from 21.15 on La7, Andrea Purgatori introduces the documentaries “Death of Marilyn Monroe” and “JFK revisited” and hosts Achille Bonito Oliva, Marianna Aprile. Space also for the cartoon by Mauro Biani.
The basic question remains: is it possible to shed more light on the tragic end of an icon like Marilyn?
