In the fifty years since Marilyn Monroe died in early August 1962, rumors about her final years and demise have proliferated. With innuendo still spawning on hearsay, Keith Badman arrives on the scene to share five years of deep probing research about Ms. Monroe's decline and fall. Marilyn Monroe: The Final Years takes no prisoners, eviscerating murder and Kennedy affair rumors even as he describes the last two years of the starlet's life. His revelations match the force of his demystifications: He describes Marilyn being railroaded into Payne-Whitney Psychiatric Clinic, her sexual attack by mobsters at Frank Sinatra's Lake Tahoe retreat, and reveals the identity of her biological father. A path-finding biography in a landmark anniversary year.
