Anthony Summers


Anthony Summers is therefore the common thread of this feature film.

Marilyn Monroe with Robert Kennedy and John F. Kennedy

However, the actress is listening. An illegal wiretap set up by Jimmy Hoffa, a mob boss who wants to bring down Robert Kennedy who is suing him. And another, presumably from the FBI, but unofficial. The film also reveals that Anthony Summers acquired the certainty based on concordant evidence that Robert Kennedy was at Marilyn’s the night of her death and that they would have had a violent argument.

Summers however does not come to the conclusion that Marilyn would have been murdered. Robert Kennedy left the scene when the actress was still alive.
