Best movie about Monroe's demise
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed watching Carla Orlandi playing Marilyn Monroe. She is the only actress that portrayed Marilyn without the affected voice and mannerisms. Instead as a real woman at a moment of desperation, the last day of her life. Kudos to Ms. Orlandi who also was the creator of this controversial short film. I wish more films about Marilyn Monroe's life would portray her as an intelligent woman and not as suicidal pill popping blonde. Cover-up '62 explores the last day in the life of Marilyn Monroe and shows how she was visited on August 4th in the early evening by Robert Kennedy and Dr. Greenson. According to the first cop on the scene the body was moved and staged postmortem. The amount of Nembutal in her liver was enough to kill 3 people, and she did not have that many pills in her home. Plus, no residue of pills was ever found in her stomach. This film is a gigantic effort to disprove the theory of suicide and start the focus into re-opening the cold case. DNA test could prove that she was administered a fatal dose of Nembutal intravenously or through an enema. I highly recommend this short film by Carla Orlandi.
