Susan Bernard Dies: GENERAL HOSPITAL Actress, was 71

Susan Bernard, renowned cult movie actress of the 1960s and brilliant overseer of her father’s Marilyn Monroe photograph archive, passed away suddenly on Friday at her residence in L.A.’s prestigious Hancock Park area. The accomplished mother of Joshua John Miller, acclaimed TV producer in his own right, was 71.

Ms. Bernard, an actress of note, gained popularity for playing a kidnapped woman in the 1965 Russ Meyer cult classic “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” The film, which follows the story of three go-go dancers on a murderous rampage in the California desert, is a fan favorite.

Not only did she star in the 1969 film “That Tender Touch,” which tells the story of the disintegration of a lesbian relationship in Southern California, but she also established and is now the president of Bernard of Hollywood Publishing/Renaissance Road Inc. This company is devoted to safeguarding, showcasing, and licensing the works of her late father, Bruno Bernard, following the decline of her acting profession.

According to promotional materials, the book offers “uncommon evidence that refutes the various conspiracy theories surrounding Marilyn’s untimely passing.” The author, Ms. Bernard, attests that readers will gain access to personal archives of a respected photographer who felt compelled to speak out and provide evidence to support those who could not speak for themselves.
