This is the most definitive box set of Marilyn Monroe's movies so far, all films are in alphabetical order, mixing her early, small roles with the starring roles she completed during her short career. There's no form to the set, except to collect as much of them together and market them in an eye catching box consisting of the following films:-
All About Eve
As Young As You Feel
Don't Bother To Knock
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
How To Marry A Millionaire
Let's Make It Legal
Let's Make Love
River Of No Return
The Seven Year Itch
Some Like It Hot
There's No Business Like Show Business
We're Not Married
It's an impressive list but a disapointment not to find The Prince And The Showgirl among the titles or The Asphalt Jungle, as they are available from the same company individually. The DVDs that are here have the extra features that were previously available on disc, they all seem exactly the same as before.
You can't argue with the choice of films though, where else would you find classics like All About Eve, Some Like It Hot, The Misfits, The Seven Year Itch and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes? It's a real slice of Hollywood history.
Nice sturdy box decorated with classic images of Marilyn from the early 50s.
