Years after his wife, Ellen, was lost at sea, Nick has her declared legally dead and remarries. That same day, Ellen is rescued from a desert island and returns home. This unfinished remake of "My Favorite Wife" was the last film Marilyn Monroe worked on before her death in 1962. Most of the footage was unseen, until it was restored into a 37-minute short which aired on television on June 1, 2001. Written by
Contrary to legend, the 'hiring' of Lee Remick to replace Monroe after she was fired., was a story planted in the paper. Other than the photo of Ms. Remick, no contract was ever signed, and Ms. Remick didn't even know it had been done. See more »
Recently on AMC a restored (as best as possible with the few completed filmed scenes) version of this never completed film was shown during a special about the late Marilyn Monroe. Complete with 20th Century Fox's logo/fanfare music and the films opening credits and music the story is presented albeit with so many plot holes it's virtually impossible to follow anything. The entire showing runs about thirty eight minutes and has an odd surreal feeling about it especially after watching the special about Marilyn Monroes final days and the making or at least attempted making of Something's Got To Give. Most of the cast members are now dead which additionally gave it a quasi-haunted feeling. It's hard to say how the picture had it been completed done at the box office or how it would be viewed today. It was eventually remade as `Move Over Darling' with James Garner, Doris Day and Polly Bergen and that film was nothing overly spectacular. To sum it up it's one of those `What might have been' instances.
