Do you have a favorite Marilyn Monroe movie? Do tell.

Kelly_Hunsaker_reads ... | 894 comments I think I have only seen Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Tracy (tstan) | 558 comments My all time favorite movie is Some Like it Hot, with my favorite quote: “Nobody’s perfect.”

Gail (gailifer) | 1391 comments Agreed. Some Like It Hot

Sue Dix | 61 comments I like River of no Return with Robert Mitchum and Rory Calhoun. I like it because it’s a Western and also there’s a little boy in the movie and Marilyn is so good with kids in movies.

Kai Coates (southernbohemian) | 1 comments My favorite is Niagara because she is a femme fatale and not just a ditzy blonde, but Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a close second.

Chinook | 282 comments I don’t know that I’ve ever seen one of her movies. I’ll have to check Netflix and see if I have any to watch.

Diane  | 2044 comments I haven't seen one since I was a kid, so I can't really judge.

How to Marry a Millionaire is probably my favorite. I have seen several of her movies including Some Like it Hot, Seven Year Itch, There's No Business Like Show Business and Gentleman Prefer Blondes. I should probably watch one of her more dramatic roles like Niagara.

This book has also been made into a TV mini-series if you can find it. Looks like Netflix carries it but a long wait. Maybe they have one copy.

Chili Hanson (chilipinkcat) | 59 comments I’ve only seen two. Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I liked Some Like It Hot the best.

Pip | 1411 comments It is so long since I've seen one of her movies it is hard to judge, but I remember The Misfits as being fascinating.

Dree | 243 comments I am not sure I have ever seen one! I am not really a movie watcher, I tend to fall asleep.

message 14: by Paula (new)

Paula S (paula_s) | 220 comments I'm not sure I've seen her in anything other than Some like it hot. I loved that one though.

message 15: by Chinook (new)

Chinook | 282 comments I watched Some Like It Hot today and it’s quite funny. The older movies I used to watch weren’t quite so suggestive/racy, so that struck me. I also thought Marilyn was more natural than most of the actors.

I have heard of some of these films but not sure that I’ve seen any of them.

message 17: by Chinook (new)

Chinook | 282 comments I’ve since also watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - wasn’t as fond of it.
