Marilyn Monroe: Special Anniversary Collection
The Seven Year Itch (1955)
It's every man's fantasy - a summer romance with the sexiest woman he can imagine. Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) is a happily married man whose wife and son are off on vacation when his tempting new neighbor (Monroe) sneaks in one hot summer night to cool off in his air-conditioned apartment. How does an ordinary man deal with this irresistible temptation after seven years of marriage? Find out in this 1955 treasure featuring Evelyn Keyes and Marguerite Chapman and directed by OscarÂ® winner Billy Wilder.
River Of No Return (1954)
After his wife dies, Matt Calder (Robert Mitchum) and his young son begin a new life in the breathtaking, rugged Northwest wilderness, where Matt is robbed and beaten by ruthless gambler Harry Weston (Rory Calhoun). When Weston's beautiful fiancÃ©e (Marilyn Monroe) then decides to nurse Calder back to health, the insanely jealous Weston risks their lives by taking them all on a ride down a treacherous river.
Although the quaint motel overlooking the famed falls seems like the perfect honeymoon retreat, in fact, it's where the young and beautiful Rose Loomis (Monroe) plans to kill her husband George (Cotton). A departure from Monroe's more upbeat roles, her fascinating performance here paints a dark portrait of human sexuality. Filled with mystery and suspense, Niagara is powerful entertainment from its intriguing beginning to its shocking conclusion.
Let's Make Love (1960)
Marilyn Monroe and Yves Montand star in this bright and witty CinemaScope musical about a billionaire and an off-Broadway actress. The richest man in the world (Montand) goes to a small Greenwich village theatre where he is about to be parodied in revue. Although he's initially planning to sue, when he sees the star actress (Monroe), he's instantly love-struck and pretends to be an inept actor in order to get close to her. Monroe lights up the screen as she sings Cole Porter's "My Heart Belongs To Daddy." Milton Berle, Gene Kelly and Bing Crosby also appear in clever cameos in this light-hearted romp.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
This TechnicolorÂ® film fable follows the exploits of two gorgeous women aboard a luxury ocean liner. One (Monroe) loves diamonds and the other (Russell) loves men. On the ship with them are an elderly diamond mine owner (Charles Coburn), a team of handsome and muscular Olympic athletes, a fascinating but very young millionaire (George Winslow) and a nosy private eye. Packed with 40 minutes of production numbers, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes includes the legendary title song and "Diamond Are A Girl's Best Friend."
