A French gentlemen and an actress, who is teaching him
30 August 2002 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Okay, many people think is is not a good film with Monroe - they don't like him. But I think it's a funny film.

Mountand is they only men Monroe played with, who has so much fear like her, because this is his first Hollywoodfilm. They play nice together because he is a friendly French person. In the film she is teaching him to be a good actor. Her father is a priest.

It is an important film, because here she is an enemy of millionäres - it is a part of her new image, to be the opposition of Lorelei Lee in "Gentlemen prefer blond". To have other ideals as money!!!

The first scene with Monroe in this film is very famous and very nice to - where she sings: "My heart belong to my Daddy" (This had nothing to do with her privat point of view... I think but thats another theme.)

An interesting Movie - an e-motionpicture - with a nice Monroe.
