Author DONALD H. WOLFE has published the book THE LAST DAYS OF MARILYN MONROE in the United States.
The same book was published in the U.K., Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa with the title THE ASSASSINATION OF MARILYN MONROE.
Wolfe states that JEANNE CARMEN was a girlfriend and former next-door neighbor of MARILYN MONROE at her Doheny apartment in Hollywood.
The apartment building, located at 882 North Doheny Drive, was owned by FRANK SINATRA and was used as a "way station for SINATRA's pals, broads and business associates."
The apartment building was a nondescript low key white-on-white triplex on the corner of Doheny Drive and Cynthia Street with the apartment units surrounding a small courtyard. Many notable people have lived there, including actress ANGIE DICKINSON and actor BRAD DEXTER, who had once saved SINATRA from drowning in the ocean off Hawaii while filming the movie None But the Brave.
According to DEXTER, JEANNE CAREMN had known SINATRA and Chicago mobster JOHNNY ROSSELLI for years.
DEXTER was also a friend of MARILYN MONROE, having first met MONROE when he played a role in The Asphalt Jungle.
DEXTER recalled seeing MARILYN and JEANNE CARMEN together at the apartment on several occasions.
During an interview, DEXTER stated with regard to MARILYN and JEANNE "They were friends. I'd see them at Pucini's with FRANK, and sometimes at Palm Springs."
