MARILYN MONROE. The dark, twisted undercurrents surrounding her tragic death have - like JFK's assassination, never stopped haunting the American psyche. Will we ever know the truth? But what if there was someone with intimate, first-hand knowledge of what happened to Marilyn on that fateful night forty years ago. Someone who'd been carefully picked and cleverly manipulated to be the fall guy for her murder, but managed to flee the premises before the arrival of the official onslaught - exiling himself out of the country with the only surviving, ey-witness account of the murder and its conspirators. And what if that individual wrote a book, telling everything, and secretly arranged for it to come into the possession of a trusted family friend who was a noted Los Angeles attorney. But because of its scorching revelations was considered unpublishable for the times, and was committed to a safety deposit box, where, through the course of years - retirement and death, it was eventually forgotten. And what if a purchase at a recent Pasadena estate sale led to to the manuscript's discovery - freeing it from its forty year entombment, bringing this individual's extraordinary story to light, providing us with a final, definitive account of what many consider to be the crime of the century and certainly LA's most infamously unsolved murder! What if such a manuscript really existed? That told everything. Everything. It does. NO CITY FOR DREAMING - the long lost manuscript of Lou Beach. Published August 5, 2002 - the 40th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's tragic death. Don O'Melveny is the author of several successful films. He owns a fine art gallery in West Hollywood and surfs on the weekends.
