It’s impossible not to recognize Marilyn Monroe’s eternal grace and bright smile. The mysterious story of a woman whose talent and passionate beauty enchanted the whole world. A true Hollywood star whose fate was sealed too soon by her tragic and enigmatic death on Sunday August 5th in 1962. Marilyn Monroe was found dead, completely naked, in the bed of her apartment. She was only 36 years old!
The official report on her disappearance states that she committed suicide by ingesting a large dose of pentobarbital. A few hours after her death, this hypothesis was refuted and the idea of a possible murder consolidated, perhaps connected to Marilyn’s confidential relationship with the Kennedy brothers. But who could have killed the woman who had revolutionized the film industry? And why?
Detective Becky Aldrige wants to prove to the world that this was not a suicide but a well-organized murder. During her research, she has recently come across a box containing letters and documents, which might clarify the innumerable doubts on the death of the film star. It belonged to Dr. Ralph Greenson, Marylin’s psychiatrist who first saw the dead star and also the one who was suspected as a possible killer. He himself left the box in the university archives of UCLA, California, where it was found.
Box 39 is one of the most dramatic icons of the tragic death of the famous diva, as it contains one of the secrets of her life still unsolved today.
The unusual peculiarity is, in fact, the writing on the seal of the box: to be opened only in the year 2039, hence the name “ Box 39 ”.
