The American Way: Nazi Escape, Superman, and Marilyn Monroe

Hosted By: American Jewish University

Family lore had it that late one night in Midtown Manhattan in 1954, Bonnie Siegler’s grandfather crossed paths with Marilyn Monroe – her white dress flying up around her as she filmed a scene for The Seven Year Itch. Jules Schulback had his home movie camera with him, capturing what would become the only surviving footage of that legendary night. Bonnie wasn’t sure she quite believed her grandfather’s story… until while cleaning out his apartment, she found the film reel. The discovery would prompt her to investigate all of her grandfather’s seemingly tall tales—and lead her in pursuit of a remarkable piece of forgotten history bridging old Hollywood, the birth of the comic book, and the Holocaust. The American Way is a vivacious story of two very different men both striving to make their way in New York. Join Authors Helene Stapinksi and Bonnie Siegler in conversation with AJU as we take a trip down memory lane and discover a tale of hope and reinvention.
