Early in, where Wagner is talking to Bates in bed, just as she sits up her bedclothes in the 'side shots' cover her bosom area, but are down near her waist in the 'front on' shots, and then again. Covered, not, covered, not, covered. A minor 'error', but noticeable. See more »
An almost unbearable movie,even Colbert and Monroe can't save it
This is quite possibly the worst Marilyn Monroe movie I have ever seen,it's not poor Marilyn's fault though. If you want to blame anyone for ruining this movie blame Barbara Bates and Robert Wagner. All Bates does in this movie is whine and complain , and she doesn't do it very well either.Wagner is Bates' husband who wants her to stop trying to get her divorced parents back together, and just like Bates, he gets so annoying you just want to slap him by the end of the movie. The two saving graces of "Let's Make is Legal" are Claudette Colbert and Marilyn Monroe, who doesn't have enough screen time.
