Some Like It Hot – This is one of Marilyn Monroe’s funnier movies. Marilyn plays her trademark role as the bubbly blonde. Her presence is so commanding that she somehow is not overshadowed by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon pretending to be women as they run from the mob.
Niagara – This is my favorite drama starring Marilyn. Her character’s husband is a jealous and controlling pyscho. Let’s just say that it doesn’t end well for her.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes – This movie is worth watching for Marilyn’s chemistry with her co-star Jane Russell (I love the scene where she pretends to be Marilyn’s character.) , who perfectly balances Marilyn’s performance. This also features one of Marilyn’s most famous songs, “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.”
Bus Stop – Marilyn is a plays a performer again in this one (as in Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). A rancher claims he is madly in love with her, even though he doesn’t know her, or even how to pronounce her name.
How to Marry a Millionaire – Marilyn, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall are a trio of models looking for rich husbands. None of their stories end as expected and that’s part of the fun of this movie, not to mention the gorgeous clothes.
I am a huge Pretty Little Liars fan. I occasionally (or often) come across as a manic fan of the show due to a need to analyze every episode, character and spoiler. My blog's name (prettylittlemania.com) is inspired by an episode entitled "Mona-Mania" from the third season.
I also recently launched my second blog, dimplesandgrins.com, which is a joy seeking mission.
