Synopsis
A thinly disguised drama based on Marilyn Monroe's life and death, with Connie Stevens flaunting her undeniable charms, Shelley Winters as a Hollywood gossip columnist, Don Murray as an attractive married U.S. Senator, Nehemiah Persoff as a European-accented studio czar, James Olson as a cerebral artist who becomes the star's husband. Apparently anticipating a libel suit, ABC Television yanked this film prior to its original premiere in early March 1974 and tried to keep it under wraps.
