Paul Davids - Marilyn Monroe, the CIA, and UFOs
How did the death of Marilyn Monroe in 1962 presage the assassination of President Kennedy one year later and was there a UFO connection? Paul Davids has a unique perspective on UFO history, both as the producer of Showtime’s “Roswell” starring Twin Peaks’ Kyle MacLachlan, and as someone who provided Roswell documentation to President Bill Clinton in both 1996 and in person in 2008. In this presentation, he expands upon his film “Marilyn Monroe Declassified” by looking into the dark and twisted career of former CIA Head of Counterintelligence James Angleton — and FBI surveillance and CIA targeting of women known to have been mistresses of John F. Kennedy, including Marilyn Monroe, Mary Pinchot Meyer and Judith Campbell Exner — and other Hollywood women whose information and activities threatened the FBI and CIA: Dorothy Kilgallen (who had strong UFO interests) and Jean Seberg (whose support of the Black Panthers made her a victim of the FBI COINTELPRO mind control and discrediting operations, leading to her death). What were the consequences of leaks of highly classified CIA information in the 1950s and 1960s; how did UFO knowledge gleaned from JFK put Marilyn Monroe at risk; what is the documentation and evidence for this; and what policies kept the truth concealed from the public – and continue to keep it concealed?
Paul Davids was the executive producer and co-writer of the 1994 Showtime dramatic film, “Roswell,” a Golden Globe nominee for Best Television Motion Pic
