MOVIE CLIPS W/ MONROE
THE DVD SHELVES ARE OVERFLOWING WITH MARILYN MONROE JUST IN TIME FOR THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF MARILYN MONROES BIRTH.
LEAD: THE DVD SHELVES ARE OVERFLOWING WITH MARILYN MONROE JUST IN TIME FOR THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF MARILYN MONROES BIRTH. (TAKE PKG) SCRIPT: (NATAUDIO: "Diamonds are a girl's best friend") IF DIAMONDS REALLY "ARE" A GIRLS BEST FRIEND, MARILYN MONROE'S DIAMOND COLLECTION WILL BE EVERY GIRL'S BEST ENTERTAINMENT. JUNE 1 WOULD HAVE BEEN MARILYN'S 75TH BIRTHDAY --, AND THE DIAMOND COLLECTION FEATURES FIVE OF HER BIGGEST MOVIES --INCLUDING THE HILARIOUS FEMINIST DINOSAUR "GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES" -- ABOUT GLAMOROUS SHOWGIRLS WHO WANT NOTHING MORE THAN ENGAGEMENT RINGS! (NATAUDIO: "A kiss might feel good, but a diamond tiarra lasts forever.") "HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" -- ANOTHER ANTI-FEMINIST COMEDY IN WHICH THREE BEAUTIFUL MODELS GO LOOKING FOR RICH HUSBANDS. (NATAUDIO: "Dearly Beloved.") (NATAUDIO: "oh..do you feel the breeze from the subway?") THE "SEVEN YEAR ITCH," WITH TOM EWEL, INCLUDES MARILYN'S MOST FAMOUS MOVIE MOMENT: WHEN HER WHITE DRESS IS DISTURBED OVER A WINDY SUBWAY GRATE. (NATAUDIO: "Hello?") MARILYN SINGS WITH AN ALL-STAR CAST IN THE MUSICAL COMEDY "THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS" (NATAUDIO: "This bus stop is closed as of now!") AND THE ROLE SOME CONSIDER HER BEST IS IN "BUS STOP" -- AS A SEXY SINGER WHO LEARNS ABOUT LOVE ONE LONG SNOWY NIGHT. (NATAUDIO: "story of my life...I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop") IT DOESN'T COME WITH THE DIAMOND COLLECTION, BUT YOU CAN ALSO RENT "SOME LIKE IT HOT" ON DVD -- WHICH WAS VOTED THE BEST COMEDY OF ALL TIME BY THE AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE. AND EVERY MONROE FAN SHOULD HAVE A COPY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY MOVIE IN THE DIAMOND COLLECTION CALLED "MARILYN MONROE: THE FINAL DAYS," WHICH TELLS THE TRAGIC STORY OF MARILYN'S DEATH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOVIE 'SOMETHING' GOTTA GIVE." AS WITH ALL OF THESE DVDS, "THE FINAL DAYS" IS FILLED WITH RARE FOOTAGE, INTERVIEWS, AND COMMENTARY YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE ..INCLUDING MARYLYN'S FIRST NUDE MOVIE SCENE .. WHICH WAS SHOCKING 40 YEARS AGO. (NATAUDIO: "Come on ...the water's so refreshing!") HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARILYN MONROE! I'M SARA VOORHEES REPORTING. RECAP
