Amy Greene on Marilyn Monroe's death

"Everyone that meets me always asks the same questions: 1) What was Marilyn really like?  2) Do I think she was murdered or committed suicide? 

To answer question one, she was fine. She was one of us. Marilyn was full energy and she loved being who she was. She liked being a movie star. Actually, she relished being a movie star. Marilyn never tired of the public or they of her. There must have been some kind of radar going back and forth.
As for question number two, Milton and I believe in our hearts that it was an accident. She took the wrong combination at the wrong time. We had spoken to her from Paris, where Milton again was filming another collection for Life. They made a date to meet in 10 days. Marilyn sounded strong, happy, confident, energetic and she was looking forward to seeing him and working together again. I remember her saying to him, “Old friends are the best friends, now don’t forget me!”  There was no way that the day after this conversation she would have deliberately taken her own life."
