MARILYN MINUTES: Starring
Available on DVD
Vastly different from her often comedic roles, Marilyn's classic dramatic performance as this diabolical and scheming woman is at once fascinating and frightening, painting a powerful portrait of human sexuality and passion.
This is the film that put Marilyn Monroe
on the map. She was a superstar because of this movie. This is an
awesome film! Marilyn appears in glorious technicolor and she is GORGEOUS in it.
This is one of her best dramatic roles. It is the only time she
played a villian. This must be in your collection. I have a special fondness for
it because it was filmed in my home Canada! It includes the longest walking
scene in film history.
"What lifts the film above the commonplace is its star, Marilyn Monroe."
"All the performances are competent, but Marilyn Monroe - hitherto typed as a glamour girl - easily comes off best with a surprisingly effective impersonation of a mousy maniac."
