Marilyn, Tony Summers, and his Paper Tiger

With the release of a new Netflix documentary entitled The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes looming, Anthony Summers recently published an article on the case in Vanity Fair magazine and now Don McGovern provides the missing fact checking of that article in correcting the record with respect to the dubious Agnes Flanagan story of the stuffed tiger toy.

Donald McGovern continues his review of Mark Shaw’s Collateral Damage by examining Shaw’s odd photographic evidence and the many wrong depictions contained in the book, by analyzing Shaw’s contrived murder scenario using a bulb syringe as the weapon, and by summarizing Shaw’s scholarship and thesis, concluding that he not only engaged in rumor, opinion, gossip, and innuendo, but in the worst form of gross speculation and evidence creation.

Donald McGovern reviews Mark Shaw’s recent book Collateral Damage, largely about the deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Dorothy Kilgallen, and discovers that the author recklessly engaged in twisting the facts to suit his theories through the use of a fabricated friendship, peculiar and unreliable resources, discredited witnesses, and more in Part 1 of a two-part analysis.
