Instead of helping out, Sinatra ordered Monroe to be removed from his estate, according to new book, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.
A security guard for Sinatra's Cal-Neva Lodge tells author J. Randy Taraborrelli, "She opened her purse and pulled out those syringes. I was standing right there with Mr Sinatra and Pat Lawford. Marilyn was very casual about it. She was looking for something else and just pulled them out and put them on the table... Then - and I had never seen anything like this before - she put a small hole at the end of the capsule, and swallowed it. 'Gets into your bloodstream faster that way,' she said."
Valet George Jacobs adds, "Frank Sinatra didn't know what to think about any of it. He was upset, though. He loved Marilyn, yes. But for her to maybe die at Cal-Neva while he was there? That would have been terrible. So he said: 'Get her out of here and get her out of here now.' And that was it. We had to do what he said. I mean, the woman was sick. But as compassionate as Sinatra was, he had a line and she crossed it."
This picture of Marilyn Monroe and pianist Buddy Greco were taken at the Cal-Neva Resort in Nevada in the summer of 1962, just five days before her death from a barbiturates overdose on August 5. They were part of a set of 36 photos taken of Monroe and others at the resort that summer. But only six remain - the other 30 were stored in a safe-deposit box at the World Trade Center and were destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.
Does she haunt the Cal-Neva Ranch to this day?
Recently her Some Like Hot co-star Tony Curtis opened up about Marilyn's pregnancy/abortion.Curtis is set to shock fans with a new book insisting she was carrying his child following their steamy affair while filming Some Like It Hot. In his new memoir The Making of 'Some Like It Hot', the actor describes his liasons with the blond bombshell in explicit detail, and even claims the baby she conceived during their 1958 affair was his. Curtis goes on to recall the day the star announced her pregnancy in October 1958 during a heated exchange with her playwright husband Arthur Miller, who refused to believe the baby was Curtis' child. And although Curtis' then-wife Janet Leigh was also pregnant with their second daughter, Jamie Lee, the 84 year old insists Monroe was intent on mothering the child she eventually miscarried.
The actor also reveals their first tryst actually came in 1950, when Monroe was first launching her career - and he insists he'll never forget their romps.
He writes, "When I was in bed with Marilyn, I was never sure, before, during or after, where her mind was. She was an actress. She could play a part. She could give the part what she thought a man wanted. I never asked for more. What I experienced with her was unforgettable.”
Curtis' book is set for release on September 28, 2009.
