Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
This second volume of the Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection features five of the blonde bombshell’s lesser-known films, all of them available on DVD for the very first time. Don’t Bother to Knock, which also stars the great Richard Widmark, was the first film to showcase Monroe’s dramatic acting abilities. In Let’s Make Love, featuring Monroe’s classic number "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," she plays a stage actress who falls for her costar, unaware that he’s the world’s richest man. Howard Hawks’s screwball comedy Monkey Business finds Monroe playing the sexy secretary of an absent-minded professor (Cary Grant) who discovers a miraculous youth potion. Niagara features Monroe as a diabolical, scheming seductress, while in the Gold Rush adventure River of No Return her sex appeal is matched by the smoldering charms of Robert Mitchum.
