Marilyn Monroe was an actress and model who became one of the most celebrated cultural icons in American history. On Wednesday, April 27th, Netflix is releasing a new documentary about Monroe entitled The Marilyn Monroe Mystery: The Unheard Tapes.
The documentary compiles research by Anthony Summers, who spent years interviewing and researching the actress’ life for his book goddess. After interviewing thousands of people who knew Monroe or were a part of her life (including filmmakers, co-stars, hairstylists, makeup artists, friends and more), Summers compiled more than 600 tapes that have never been heard of by the public for a documentary feature .
Due to the somewhat unusual circumstances of her death and global presence, Monroe has been the subject of many conspiracy theories over the years, and the documentary touches her a little. But before you watch, you might want to understand the below facts about her death.
How old was Marilyn Monroe when she died?
Marilyn Monroe was born on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California and died at the age of just 36. She died on Saturday August 4, 1962 at her home on Fifth Helena Drive in Los Angeles. Her body was discovered early Sunday morning, August 5th.
The Cause of Marilyn Monroe’s Death
Monroe died of acute barbiturate poisoning, caused by either an overdose or suicide. Several empty medicine bottles were found next to her bed. At the time, it was believed that she could not have overdosed, as dosages were well in excess of the lethal limit. Suicide appears to be the most likely reason for her death.
In the decades since, dozens of conspiracy theories have been advanced about Monroe’s death, with many people believing she was actually murdered and her death staged to look like suicide or an overdose, but no evidence of foul play has ever been found.
