Little Did She Know Tragedy Lay Just Around the Corner.
14 July 2015 | by rmax304823See all my reviews

Tabloid trash for those who still find a magnet in the meme that Marilyn has now been turned into. Why not leave her alone or, at the least, treat her with more respect? After all, it was another country and besides the wench is dead.

I couldn't hack it. The narrator's loud and eager voice had me on the edge of my seat, waiting for the vacuum cleaner commercial to appear, followed by, "Hurry -- offer ends at midnight." The editing is next to instantaneous, the music is all percussion and electronic whangs. The contributors include Kim Morgan, who is not only beautiful in a slightly lush way but has some intelligence. The others, I regret to say, are self-absorbed hangers on or nincompoops. One -- dressed and painted like a corpse -- admits: "My father discovered her."

Monroe was sexy, pretty in a glamorized way, and a self-destructive performer of great ambition and modest talent. It must have been a hell of a job to get her through her best movies -- "Don't Bother To Knock", "Bus Stop," and "Some Like It Hot."

Requiescat in pace.
