Movie Reviews

Classic but no longer controversial
(4 out of 5 stars)

"At the time this was produced in Great Britain, this material was considered very controversial. Some American TV stations refused to run this special because it confirmed that MM had affairs with both President Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. Now this news is old hat so it doesn't have the same power it once did. After this special, 20/20 did another report that added to the story. The 20/20 report was canned and Geraldo Rivera was fired for protesting the censorship of the 20/20 report. Today viewing this DVD reveals many flaws, such as the dark lighting of the interviews and the confusing way the material is presented. Still, if you want to purchase this DVD before it goes out of print and becomes a collector's item, this would be the time."
Haunting, informative
Leon M. Bodevin | Lemoore, CA | 04/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though I believe Marilyn Monroe committed suicide, I found this video (which captures Marilyn's last days) very informative: it stands as a testament to how powerful men can take advantage of women (as JFK and RFK seem to have done with Marilyn). Sometimes angering, sometimes depressing, this video is essential to understanding the downfall of an American icon. Those critical to the premise that Marilyn had affairs with both Robert and John Kennedy will find it hard to deny the affairs in the face of the plentiful interviews and evidence in this movie."
A Featureless Review of Marilyn's Last Days
pgoeld | Woodside, CA USA | 07/17/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary covers Marilyn Monroe's last days and focuses on her links to John and Bobby Kennedy. Unfortunately, with just one exception, the players in this story (particularly the narration) appear to be bored with the whole affair. The lighting is too dark and the music sounds like it came from a 1960's stag film. For the MM cognoscenti, very little new information is presented. The highlight of the film is the riveting testimony of Deborah Gould, who was the ex-wife of Peter Lawford. Even though she was probably just 10 years old in the early 1960's when all of this took place, she is as stunning as she is believable."
