THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH: Marilyn Monroe proves that no man can resist her - especially a married man - in this sexy romp directed by Billy Wilder and heralded as one of the quintessential comedies of all time! When a seductive starlet (Monroe) moves in upstairs, a married man (Tom Ewell) has his fidelity put to the test. Keeping his marriage vows in the face of her flirtations proves hilariously tough when challenged by the notorious Seven Year Itch.
GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES: Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but this blonde bombshell prefers diamonds, and lots of them! Glamorous showgirl Marilyn sets sail for France, intent on marrying a rich, yet boring, beau. But anything can - and does - happen with the beautiful and fun-loving Jane Russell acting as chaperone. From celebrated director Howard Hawks, this musical comedy classic features Marilyn's signature rendition of the hit show tune Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.
NIAGARA: A vacationing couple, George and Rose Loomis (Joseph Cotton and Marilyn Monroe), rent a quaint bungalow at romantic Niagara Falls. But Rose and her lover plan to murder the unsuspecting George - in the falls! A dramatic departure from her more upbeat roles, Monroe's fascinating performance as the scheming murderess paints a powerfully dark portrait of human sexuality.
RIVER OF NO RETURN: 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 fiance (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.
LET'S MAKE LOVE: When billionaire Jean Marc Clement (Yves Montand) learns he is to be parodied in an upcoming theatre production, he lands a part in the show - playing himself! Immediately smitten with his co-star Amanda (Marilyn Monroe), who does not return his affection, Clement tries desperately to improve his stage presence in hopes of winning her over. Directed by Georges Cukor, Let's Make Love features Marilyn singing My Heart Belongs To Daddy.
