Dean Martin had a clause in his contract for "Something's Got to Give" that gave him approval of his co-star. When 20th Century-Fox famously fired Marilyn Monroe and tried to replace her with Lee Remick, Martin balked and insisted Marilyn be re-hired.

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.
