Daily Mail

A classified file released by the FBI shows how the agency tracked Marilyn Monroe’s suspected ties to communism in 1956.

The agency documented an anonymous phone call to the New York Daily News that year warning that playwright Arthur Miller was a communist and Monroe had ‘drifted into the communist orbit’ after her marriage to him earlier that year.

The file is just one piece of the puzzle about what the FBI knew about the actress when she died in August 1962.

The Associated Press waging an ongoing campaign to have more of the FBI documents released by the agency, coinciding with the 50th anniversary Monroe’s death.

    How ironic… keeping a file on Marilyn Monroe’s alleged ties to Communism in 1956. Today, over a half-century later, America is falling down the Communist rat hole and no one gives a tinker’s damn.

    :evil:

    Why do I get the feeling the release of this communist sympathizing info on Marilyn now is to further show the mainstream and innocuous aspect of this vile ideology.

    Back then the FBI had files on famous and notorious people. Now days, they have files on all of us. They know more about the common citizens now, than they knew about the public personalities back then.
