Because the bathing suit Marilyn Monroe wears was so risqué (for the time) and caused such a commotion on the set, director Joseph M. Newman had to make it a closed set while she was filming. See more »
I found "Love Nest" to be light,engaging, nicely moving romantic comedy.The two leads(June Haver& William Lundigan) are very likable and there's a fine supporting cast. Jack Paar is entertaining as a witty friend of the family. Marilyn Monroe does her talking mannequin thing and doesn't overstay.Frank Fay does a nice job as an old lady charmer(real & fake). The script, by Billy Wilder collaborator I.A.L.Diamond, has some good one-liners and some actual heart-felt moments; as a just furloughed G.I./writer and his young wife find them selves owner of a dilapidated apartment house in N.Y. city and all that goes with it (fussy tenants,building inspectors,kooky cat).It has a scratch your head ending, but it's a pleasant viewing experience.(note: the DVD has Marilyn Monroe plastered all over the cover.She's hardly in it.)
