The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes

Emma Cooper (2022)

In Celebration of Marilyn Monroe’s birthday, born on this day in 1926, I present to you The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes. Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe’s tragic death spawned conspiracies and rumors for decades, often overshadowing her talent and shrewdness. By piecing together her final weeks, days, and hours through previously unheard recordings of those who knew her best, the film illuminates more of her glamorous, complicated life, and offers a new perspective on that fateful night.

The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes is a 2022 American documentary film directed by Emma Cooper for Netflix. It is centered around the life and untimely death of American actress and cultural icon Marilyn Monroe and is told through archival footage and unseen interviews with friends of the star. The film was released on April 27, 2022.


  1. Thank you! Many times conspiracy theories are way overdone but sometimes they fit and with this one case it does.

  2. It really does. If you’re interested there is a mystery novel written by James Elroy called American Tabloid that mixes fact with theory about the Kennedy associations and Marilyn Monroe

  3. Me also, with all of the mess that was going on around her at the time with the Kennedys it makes you wonder

  4. I would like to see this. My favorite…well “IT” girl of all time is the original…Clara Bow…but I did like Ms Monroe…who doesn’t?

What's on your mind?
