Another fascinating story about TV’s What’s My Line star and controversial news reporter Dorothy Kilgallen (above, center) was her relationship with Marilyn Monroe and Kilgallen’s interest in the UFO coverups of the 1950s with which we are so familiar today.
How are they related? The link is JFK.
At one-point Kilgallen reported on Monroe regularly…In 1953 that changed. Monroe was known to stop confiding in reporters if they did not report on her the way she wanted. It could have been also she turned to Louella Parsons. Parsons also could make or break a career, and she was in Hollywood.
An interesting 2018 documentary on Netflix, Unacknowledged, narrated by Dr. Steven Greer, who headed the 2001 Disclosure Project, names some names. Dorothy Kilgallen is one of the names Greer mentios. Dorothy already had an interest in UFO’s that went back to the 1950’s. Here is a column she wrote about a 1955 UFO sighting in Great Britain that caused some stir:
Those “Little Men” On Flying Saucers? Real, Says Kilgallen
Remember the creepy stories about flying saucers and little men from outer space? Dorothy Kilgallen has run into a new one in London. Here is her dispatch to the New York Journal-American on what a British official thinks about those “little fellows.”

London, May 22 – British scientists and airmen, after examining the wreckage of a mysterious “flying ship,” are convinced that these strange aerial objects are not optical illusions or Soviet inventions, but actually are flying saucers which originate on another planet.
The source of my information is a British official of cabinet rank who prefers to remain unidentified.
“We believe, on the basis of our inquiries thus far, that the ‘saucers’ were staffed by small men – probably under four feet tall,” my informant told me today.
“It’s frightening but there is no denying the flying saucers come from another planet.”
This official quoted scientists as saying a flying ship of this type could not have been constructed on earth.
