Marilyn Monroe - Screen Goddess Box Set [DVD]

Four films starring the legendary screen goddess Marilyn Monroe. In 'Ladies of the Chorus' (1948), aspiring burlesque artist Peggy Martin (Monroe) gets her chance of stardom when she is taken out of the chorus line and becomes a huge hit. Before long, Peggy is being romanced by a wealthy bachelor, who wants her to give up the stage and move in society circles. Peggy's mother, Mae, is not impressed, and warns her daughter that star-crossed romances seldom last for long. In 'Some Like It Hot' (1959), unemployed musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) go on the run after witnessing the St Valentine's Day Massacre. Pursued by gangsters, the duo are forced to disguise themselves as women and join Sweet Sue's all-girl band on the next train for Florida. Joe is attracted to Sugar Kane (Monroe), the band's singer, while Jerry finds himself pursued enthusiastically by millionaire Osgood E. Fielding III (Joe E. Brown). Comic complications ensue. In 'The Misfits' (1961), a sensitive young woman (Monroe), in Reno to obtain a divorce, takes up with three cowboy drifters (Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach), in town for the rodeo, and a long-time divorcee (Thelma Ritter). She and Gable fall in love but their relationship is compromised when the men reveal their plan to catch mustangs and sell them as dog food. In 'Hometown Story' (1951), Blake Washburn (Jeffrey Lynn) is a local politician embittered when he fails to get re-elected and who blames corporate interests for his fall from grace. He sets about getting his revenge via a job writing a column in his uncle's newspaper, exposing the undemocratic machinations of big business. But when his sister Iris (Monroe) is trapped underground in a cave-in, it is one of the big businesses he has railed against that comes to her aid, throwing him into a moral dilemma. Also included are two documentaries about Marilyn, 'Marilyn Monroe at the Movies', which includes a detailed filmography and newsreel footage, and 'Portrait of a Legend', looking at her turbulent private life.

British military officer Captain Anthony Trumbull (Cary Grant) is ordered to retrieve a large cannon and transport it to the British lines. In order to do this he enlists the help of guerilla leader Miguel (Frank Sinatra) and together - along with Miguel's mistress Juana (Loren) who takes a shine to Trumball - they track through the mountains of Spain to the British frontline. In 'El Cid' (1961), Charlton Heston stars as the legendary 11th Century Spanish patriot El Cid, who fights to drive invading Moors from Spain. Loren co-stars as his seductive but duplicitous lover Chimene.

In 'The Fall of the Roman Empire' (1964), Anthony Mann directs a star-studded cast in this Hollywood epic re-telling the last days of the Roman Empire. Emperor Aurelius (Alec Guinness) is poisoned by his son Commodus (Christopher Plummer), who then seizes the throne. Corrupt and cruel, Commodus brings the once mighty Empire to its knees through pestilence and war with the Barbarians, and condemns his own sister Lucilla (Loren) to death at the stake. 'White Sister' (1972) is an Italian comedy, starring Loren as a nurse treating a Communist activist who starts inventing ailments so he can spend longer in her company.

When they begin a torrid affair , Ross starts to lose his nerve, convinced that he will be killed at sea himself.
