Many deaths were sad or senseless- some were tragic- others were the revenge of old age, while a few were the revenge of something altogether more sinister...The untimely, sensational deaths of legends Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are here: so too is the tragic demise of Jean Harlow, whose Christian Scientist mother banned medical help to the end. Arthur Farnsworth - Bette Daviss husband - is included as a mysterious (not to say suspicious) death, as is the possible murder of Superman George Reeves.Others in this compelling catalogue of colourful lives and different deaths include Merle Oberon, Sammy Davis Jr, Mary Pickford, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper and Groucho Marx.
