Marilyn Monroe's bedside table is a historical and political artifact, hard evidence of an alleged conspiracy to one of the most famous mysteries of the 20th Century and ranked among the most widely-read stories of all times.
Evidence is documented in a well-publicized black and white news photograph showing a Los Angeles police officer pointing to prescription vials scattered on the table next to Marilyn Monroe's bed, photo was taken at her Brentwood California home on August 5,1962, the day she was found dead, police said a sleeping pill bottle was empty.
Ironically, the photograph is a hoax, an ingenious feat of deception that fooled millions of people throughout the world, bedside table exposes the deception, it was used as a prop to stage her death-bed scene. Photograph was doctored, poorly retouched, table was clumsily manipulated, a crafty work of art that duped skilled experts, even after 40 years of research was put to the test.
Today ... thousands of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia are exhibited or collected, the magnitude and importance of these items are quite modest compared to the significance of the bedside table.
Marilyn Monroe is listed in the National Archives, exhibited at the Smithsonian and Presidential Libraries, and for decades, subject of contemporary art, the Marilyn Monroe mystique is timeless.
A corporate sponsor or individual is needed to fund and donate story and table to a museum or a university, exhibit as a learning tool for future generation of skeptics and forensic experts.
Copyright, detailed factual evidence and a original wire-photograph will complete the exhibit and present a concise story ... an important story that has to be told and not the latest attempt to make riches off the name of a dead celebrity.
