Marilyn Monroe
#1
Just been watching some Monroe movies. She was brilliant. 7 Year Itch and Some Like It Hot I think were her best.

She really was fantastic. I've yet to see many of her films, but Some Like it Hot is a great one. Gentlemen Prefer Blonds is pretty good, IIRC, notable as it also stars Jane Russell. Not a bad combo! :drool:

Gentelmen Prefer Blondes is awesome, and directed by that master of rapid-fire screwball comedy, Howard Hawks...who just two years ealier produced (and many say ghost-directed) The Thing... and just a few years later directed Rio Bravo, that John Wayne/Dean Martin western we were discussing. Smile Now there's some diversity!

I also really enjoy her in Monkey Business - also directed by Hawks, with Cary grant and Ginger Rogers - and in How to Marry a Millionaire, with Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall.

And for a great Bruce Campbell version of Some Like It Hot, just check out the Hercules episode "Men in Pink," where he basically reprises the Tony Curtis role.

You might be interested to know that previously unpublished pictures of the young Marilyn Monroe were just released.

And I suppose I should add that Lindsay Lohan has recreated some classic Marilyn (nude) poses for The New Yorker.

I was never a big Marilyn fan.

BTW -- if anyone posts links to the Lohan pictures, please make sure you provide warnings about mature content and I would prefer you NOT embed the images in these forums or link directly to them.

I'm guessing these are after her early pin-up work, though, since she's the peroxide blonde here.

As to the Lohan photo shoot...meh...a cheap imitation.

Note: Lindsay's photo shoot was for New York magazine back in early '08, not the stuffier New Yorker. Wink
