Here's my EInsiders obit. I've got a grainy picture I'll be posting
with it, and there is supposed to be another picture on the way.
TED JORDAN Died Mar. 30, 2005
Actor and author Ted Jordan died 80. Mr. Jordan was also credited in
several films as Eddie Friedman. He was the nephew of Big Band leader
and songwriter Ted Lewis. Mr. Jordan played Nathan Burke for nine years
on the hit TV series "Gunsmoke." He appeared in nearly 100 films
and TV shows from the 1940s through 1980. He had bit parts in such
films as Otto Preminger's Noir thriller "Whirlpool," "Tokyo
Joe" and "Kill the Umpire." Mr. Jordan was briefly married to
stripper Lili St. Cyr. He authored the controversial book "Norma
Jean." In the book he made such unsubstantiated claims as being
Marilyn Monroe's lover, of having impregnated Ms. Monroe and she
aborted the child and that Ms. Monroe had lesbian sex with his wife
Lili St. Cyr. Most historians dismissed the book as hogwash. Some
people claim that his book was the basis for the HBO movie "Norma
Jean & Marilyn," however, his name doesn't appear anywhere on the
film. In researching this obit and the claims of Mr. Jordan, I was not
surprised that about the only group that gave Mr. Jordan's account
any credence was a White Supremacist website called the Racial
Nationalist Library. That particular website uses Mr. Jordan's book
to show the Jewish Hollywood Cabal seduced gentile women like Ms.
Monroe to mix the races and thus dominate the world!
