Here are Hollywood's biggest stars as they never wanted you to know them--all behaving very, very badly. They stood drunkenly outside the three-suite apartment building--singer/actor Frank Sinatra, baseball star Joe DiMaggio, and a pair of private eyes, one wielding a camera. DiMaggio and Sinatra were convinced their former lover, Marilyn Monroe, was inside having sex with actress Sheila Stewart. The lesbian fantasy fueled plans to plan to expose Twentieth Century Fox's newest star attraction, then kill her. How and why was never determined, the men too drunk to be a threat to anyone. The only violence came when one of the private eyes smashed in the door and took a photo--of fifty-year-old Mrs. Florence Kotz, the real tenant who stood terrified, a sheet held in front of her breasts. It was the Wrong Door Raid and the studio worried it would be a disaster. Monroe favored the Kennedy brothers over the ball player. She entertained Jack on his back in his sister and brother-in-law's bathtub, Bobby in a more conventional way. And before Jack's generation reached puberty, their father, Joe, happily ravaged a willing Gloria Swanson--once on the family yacht where Jack had been hiding to surprise the old man. So many stories, so much scandal: Nancy Davis (Reagan) running naked through Robert Walker's house; Joan Crawford, June Allyson, Dick Powell, and other major stars adopting children stolen from their biological parents by the infamous Georgia Tann; a serial killer and a bondage porn star delighted unknowing viewers of the latest reality television show.
