LOS ANGELES -

The FBI has re-issued files it kept on Marilyn Monroe, removing dozens of redactions from entries related to surveillance of the actress for communist ties.
    
A large section of the files obtained by The Associated Press focuses on Monroe's 1962  trip to Mexico and her emerging friendship with Frederick Vanderbilt Field, who was disinherited from his wealthy family for leftist views.

Field was Monroe's guide on a trip in which she furniture-shopped for her new home.
    
The AP appealed the redactions in the file as part of a series of stories on the 50th anniversary of Monroe's death in 1962, but the bureau previously said it no longer had access to the files.

The bureau issued a new version after a request for details on the records' locations.
