I saw this documentary on the Biography Channel - www.thebiographychannel.co.uk

Review: This is really a look at the conspiracy theories surrounding Marilyn's death. I'm not an expert on the scientific analysis of what Marilyn may have consumed that evening, so I won't comment on that. It didn't really go into much detail over what happened on the afternoon of August 4th, which seems crucial to me.

It is well worth watching for the impressive (though not unfamiliar) list of interviewees. Marilyn's friends, Evelyn Moriarty and Ralph Roberts, were instantly likeable. Bob Slatzer was interviewed alone in a car park, I guess he couldn't go out in daylight! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) But they couldn't find a single person to corroborate that he knew Marilyn.

I don't really buy into the conspiracy theories, but I found it an interesting documentary, with some great interviews but not enough detail.

Overall note: 3 out of 5 stars - 2 stars for the interviews, but only 1 star for investigation.
