Features the Marilyn Monroe films GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, SEVEN YEAR ITCH, and HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE.
How To Marry A Millionaire: Three screen goddesses - Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall, and Marilyn Monroe - star as golddigging models blessed with fabulous looks but limited brain power. The three blondes pool their resources and conspire to nab millionaire husbands, renting an expensive penthouse to lure in their likely prey. But with Rory Calhoun, Cameron Mitchell, David Wayne, Fred Clark, Alex D'Arcy, and William Powell playing the desired millionaires, the ladies are pushed to the end of their wits as they try to decide whom to wed....
'How To Marry A Millionaire' was the first movie to be filmed in CinemaScope, but 'The Robe' (1953, directed by Henry Koster) beat it to the cinemas.
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: Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) and her friend Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell) are a pair of showgirls, Dorothy the sassy one looking for true love, Lorelei the blonde hoping to marry a millionaire, with her sights set on Gus Esmond, a wealthy nerd stuck under his father's thumb.
When Lorelei and Dorothy take a transatlantic cruise to Paris, an undercover detective follows to find out if Lorelei is really a gold-digging schemer. Unfortunately, the irrepressible Lorelei is a born flirt and soon finds herself in a compromising position with Sir Francis Beekman (Charles Coburn), owner of a diamond mine. The girls have to use all their wits to get out of trouble and still find love and marriage. Thanks to the talents of the luminous stars and director Howard Hawks, plus stunning technicolor cinematography, 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' emerges as one of the most charming, entertaining musicals of the 1950s. Marilyn Monroe, never more luminous, sings her legendary musical number "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (which later inspired Madonna's 'Material Girl' video). 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' is based on the hit Broadway musical which was adapted from the book by Anita Loos.
Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days: Marilyn's final project, Something's Got To Give, is one of the most talked about unfinished films in history. Now, through interviews, never-before-seen footage and an edited reconstruction of Something's Got To Give, take a
fascinating look back at the life and times of the world's most famous and beloved star.
