Présentation de l'éditeur
Marilyn Monroe was a movie legend, starring in films such as The Seven Year Itch, Some Like It Hot and, in later years, The Misfits, with Clark Gable. In 1962, this beautiful star died, legend has it from suicide. There have been many takes on the life of Marilyn Monroe but in this exceptional, highly-surprising, painstakingly researched book, Keith Badman has uncovered long-lost (or previously unseen) receipts, invoices, cuttings, files, interviews, eye-witness accounts, as well as notes that reveal the details of Marilyn Monroe's last days, and how the reality of her last two years has never fully been told. After five years of highly-meticulous research, Badman is now able to reveal the unequivocal truth about how she died and the cover-up that ensued, as well as the reality behind her rumoured 1962 remarriage to Joe DiMaggio, her final (ultimately unfinished) movie, Something's Got To Give, her jealousy of film legend, Elizabeth Taylor, her romance with the singer, Frank Sinatra, the night she sang for JFK, her deplorable July 1962 weekend at Sinatra's Cal-Neva lodge, how she was fleeced, financially by some of her supposed best-friends, her final week alive (who she saw, where she went, who she spoke to) and her well-known, Say goodbye to the President, farewell message, as well as much, much more, including her time with John and Bobby Kennedy. Using private, previously unpublished itineraries and original eye-witness accounts, Badman is able to make public, in hard-core detail, just how deeply she was involved with them and reveal the precise date of Marilyn's very first encounter with the President, thus ending the five-decade-old mystery. Badman reveals Marilyn as never seen before; the result, a deluge of stories and facts that even some of Monroe's most die-hard fan will be unaware of. For those who think they know all about her concluding years, be prepared to think again. About the Author Keith Badman is the author of eight, highly-acclaimed biographies. Accolades for his work include The Beatles After The Break-Up (1999): An awesome piece of scholarship a bible, (New Musical Express); The Beatles Off The Record (2000): Compared with some of The Beatles' later selective and polished or faulty and fading memories, this is much nearer the truth, (The Beatles' official biographer, Hunter Davies); The Beach Boys The Definitive Diary Of America's Greatest Band On Stage And In The Studio (2004) Endorsed by Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson, Badman's book is a fine piece of work, painstakingly researched and compiled This is surely to become the pre-eminent guide to one of music's most influential bands Badman's book ranks among the very best.

I was not sure about getting this book but being a Marilyn Fan it just seemed like a losing battle. Anyhow i found this book to be honest and so informative about the final years of her life that for decades have been covered in salacious rumors and here say. I really felt like the author was giving back Marilyn the dignity that she has so deserved over the years. What i really loved is how for years so many other authors have gone along with what people who supposedly knew her have said happened between Marilyn and the Kennedy's and her supposed husband Robert Slazter and Jeanne Carmen, how author finally set it all straight about these two how made careers for themselves on one simple encounter with the Screen Goddess. For Anyone that really wants to get as close as being there with her those final years i highly recommend this book!

By far the BEST book I've ever read about MM's final days...Agree or disagree (and it is hard to do so) with the authors meticulously researched account of MM's final day (and night) and his knowledged hypothesis regarding MM's untimely death, this book is absolutely FANTASTIC...I am actually reading it again.... No matter what, it shows that her so-called friends let her down and were responsible for her death...
A Fantastic MM Book

This book finally makes sense out of the nonsense that has come to be MM's legacy. My only complaint would be - the story of the Cal Nevada weekend - it doesn't make sense and if it doesn't make sense it probably isn't true. Otherwise, a most interesting account!
