BULLETS OVER BROADWAY (12mdn't FilmFour) features one of the few murders in the work of Woody Allen (Crimes and Misdemeanours offers another). This gives the film a dark hue and provides a nice contrast with the many laugh-out-loud funny moments. In a role that Allen himself might have taken as a younger man, John Cusack plays an idealistic playwright. His standards are gradually compromised as he takes a gangster's money to put on his play - on condition that he casts the hood's moll in a leading role.

Only the assassination of John F Kennedy has given rise to more conspiracy theories than the demise of Marilyn Monroe (right). Hollywood Hall of Fame (5.30pm Sky Cinema) examines the many suggestions - some on the wilder shores of fantasy - that have been made about the star's death.
