Where would we be without another new Netflix docuseries to titillate over?
Another month, another ghost from the past gets the Netflix tape treatment. This time around, it's the turn of a cinema icon in 'The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes'.
The Netflix film will dive deep into the Hollywood icon's past, picking apart the star's tragic death at the age of 36. She died following an overdose on sleep and anxiety pills in her home in California in 1962.
However, that's not all that will be unpacked. Featuring previously unheard recordings of Monroe and others who knew her best, the documentary will take a look at the conspiracies that have plagued her death for decades, as well as piecing together the final weeks of her life. Netflix claims the production will offer "a new perspective on that fateful night" she passed away.
The Netflix documentary also claims to unearth aspects of Marilyn Monroe that we have never heard of before, flashing up words such as "conspiracy", "wiretaps", "communism", former US President "JFK" and "cover-up" during the final moments of the trailer.
Reports of Monroe having an affair with John F. Kennedy, and then his brother Robert, have been detailed for decades; she also famously sang 'Happy Birthday' to the president just months before her passing. But what new information will be revealed during the feature film?
Check out the trailer for the new documentary below.
The "Unheard Tapes" genre has become a Netflix staple of late. As well as 'The Ted Bundy Tapes' and 'The Nilsen Tapes' from the past, the streaming service most recently released 'The Andy Warhol Diaries' in March, featuring voice recordings of the famed artist.
'The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes' will debut exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, April 27.
