My absolute favorite Marilyn Monroe movie of all time is Some Like It Hot. There are a few other classics that you should definitely go back and check out if you have never seen before. Marilyn always brings the magic, so here are some of my other favorite films that showcase her charisma and talent:
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Marilyn Monroe’s character is engaged to a man to whom’s very rich father does not approve, as he believes she is only marrying his son for the money. She goes on a boujee cruise with her best friend, played by Jane Russell, and the father has hired a private detective to follow her and dig up any dirt that might help prevent the union between her and his son.
The Seven Year Itch
Marilyn is the beautiful blonde that has just moved in the apartment upstairs from a man whose wife and kids have escaped the heat wave by spending the summer in Maine. Left alone to engage with the new neighbor, the husband becomes infatuated by Marilyn and dreams of infidelity, and possibly tries to make that dream become reality.
The Prince and The Showgirl
European royals have traveled to England to commemorate a new king, but he finds himself attracted to an American performer played by Marilyn. Their attraction causes him to become unfocused, and Marilyn must help to smooth things out before the country becomes unstable. Also, the movie My Week With Marilyn is a documentary that was made based on an assistant’s experience and affair with Marilyn Monroe while on the set of The Prince and The Showgirl.
Now, go enjoy some classic cinema!
