I finally watched The Prince and the Showgirl recently, one of the Marilyn movies I haven't seen. I can't say I loved it, but I truly feel it's worth watching only because I find her so transfixing on screen; she has the strange ability to turn inconsequential moments into comedy gold. The tragedy of the film (okay, after Marilyn's reported deteriorating mental state, addiction, and miscarriage) is that she only wears one dress for the majority of the movie! Granted, it is a gorgeous dress (and one of my favorite moments is when she wiggles it on over those big frilly bloomers but after zipping it up it somehow looks as smooth as if she were wearing Spanx underneath) but it gets quite stale after the umpteenth scene with her wearing it. Yes, I know the script dictates that she spent three days at the embassy and couldn't have changed, but what about artistic license? Couldn't her girlfriend have dropped off another gown for her? It's a travesty, I tell you. Yesterday I watched My Week with Marilyn, which is a great follow up as it details the behind-the-scenes drama that went on during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl. Michelle Williams got the impossible task of portraying Marilyn, and Eddie Redmayne plays the role of my imaginary boyfriend. The costumes alone are worth watching, and are brilliant reproductions of pivotal Marilyn moments. (More dress images in my Stories!) #marilynmonroe #theprinceandtheshowgirl #myweekwithmarilyn

“She is a brilliant comedienne, which to me means she also is an extremely skilled actress.” ~ Sir Laurence Olivier, co-star of The Prince and the Showgirl.
