Who, What, When, Where Why?

Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jeane Mortenson, was born on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, CA. She became a model and actress through out the 1950s and the 1960s- soon after she signed her first contract in 1949. After couple of years it was said that she took an overdose which lead to en endless sleep on the night of August 5, 1962 in her bedroom in Brentwood, Los Angeles,CA.

Perspective #1

One perspective that could be believed is that she took too many pills of Nembutal, which lead to an overdose and eternal sleep. It is said that on the night of August 5th, 1962 she locked herself in the her room and took an overdose of sleeping pills.

Perspective #2

The media said that Marilyn was murdered. the media made it seem like the Kennedy's had sent someone to do their dirty job since she had an affair with both of them. but in the end the police made it clear that she committed suicide.

Media Bias

On the night of August 5,1962 it is said that Marilyn Monroe committed suicide. there are many theories when it comes to finding out what really happened to Marilyn Monroe. there are some who say that the Kennedy's killed her, others say that she indeed committed suicide and others say she was murdered. After reading and seeing different point of views I believe Marilyn Monroe was murdered. After taking her sleeping pills she made a few phone calls and died with the phone clutched to her hand and her face down facing her right side. It is reported that she was found dead at around 3:30 am but the police was called and hour later and she was found on her bed with her head turned to the right and her arms on her sides.

Criticism #1

Marxist Criticism

This criticism can be seen in Marilyn's death because it was said that in the very last interview she ever gave she mentioned something that may have lead to her death. In this interview she said that within the next couple of days or months there would be big secret revelations which may have been included her affairs with the Kennedy's.

Criticism #2

Feminist Criticism

The way feminist criticism may be involved is that way that even though there was a point of here life where it was unstable she may have known too much.
