Good previously unseen footage., 6 June 2000
Author: ( from London, England

The film Somethings Got to Give shows rare footage of the tragic film icon Marilyn Monroe just months before her death, with Marilyn looking radiant and beautiful. The film also includes interviews with the cast and crew of Somethings Got to Give who lend an insight into the filming of Monroe's final and unfinished film. I would have enjoyed more footage from the film as I believe the film would have benefited had it been longer. However, the footage of Marilyn was still beautiful to see.
