FBI files on Marilyn Monroe that could not be located earlier this year have been found and re-issued, revealing the names of some of the movie star’s acquaintances who drew concern from government officials and her own entourage.
Among the secret records is one from 1956 in which the FBI documents an anonymous call to the New York Daily News claiming playwright Arthur Miller was a communist and Monroe had “drifted into the Communist orbit.”
The file copy of a document, obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act, from playwright Arthur Miller’s FBI file, shows an FBI report stating, that “the New York Daily News received an anonymous telephone call” on July 3, 1956. The caller, “an unidentified male,” stated that “Arthur Miller had been and still was a member of the CP (Communist Party) and was their cultural front man” and that (his wife) “Marilyn Monroe” also “had drifted into the Communist orbit.”
