CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review on “The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes,” the latest documentary on the movie star who passed away in 1962 but is still revered. The film will stream on Netflix beginning April 27th.

The tapes in the title are a cache of audio interviews that were conducted by Anthony Summers from 1982 through 1985, as he created the Marilyn biography book “Goddess,” which was released in 1985. Nearly 40 years later, Summers publishes the audio again for this new doc and for a fresh look at the secrets he had revealed, with people who were still alive in the ‘80s – only 20 years after Monroe’s death – willing to talk about the actress and her mysterious demise.
