The FBI investigated actress Marilyn Monroe and playwright Arthur Miller in the mid-1950s after an anonymous caller to the New York Daily News claimed both were Communist sympathizers, the New York Daily News reports, citing  newly released records.
The records were disclosed for the first time without redactions to the Associated Press and show the extent of the FBI’s monitoring of the actress’ ties to communism.
The FBI was particularly curious about Monroe’s relationship with Frederick Vanderbilt Field, whose family disinherited him over his leftist views, the Daily News reported.
The relationship with Field “caused considerable dismay among Miss Monroe’s entourage and also among the (American Communist Group in Mexico),” the file states.
