Monkey Business

Barnaby Fulton (Cary Grant) is seeking an elixir of youth. Then a screen-writing chimp slips the juice in the water supply and Cary and Ginger Rogers start behaving like kids. Ben Hecht, IAL Diamond and Charles Lederer were the credited writers, and Charles Coburn is the patron of the project, dreaming of some viagra and a chance to chase Miss Laurel (Marilyn Monroe). It's screwball, where you appreciate the suggestiveness of that word.

The Prince and the Showgirl

Rattigan said he 'detested' adapting his stage plays for film but this, his screen version of his 1953 comedy The Sleeping Prince, is a great advance on the stage original. Laurence Olivier reprises his stage performance as the boorish Carpathian prince un-charming, in London to attend the 1911 coronation of George V, and Marilyn Monroe is delicious as the determinedly romantic chorus girl he hires for his one free evening.

I'm so tempted to see this again but saw it there a few months ago. If you are partial to TPATS and can get to London, I HIGHLY recommend seeing it on the big screen. Wonderful.

Monkey Business showing again BFI Southbank Ginger Rogers and Cary Grant reunited, in a film which looks back to screwball’s heyday and especially to Bringing Up Baby. Barnaby Fulton (Grant) is working on a youth formula for a chemical company, but lab monkeys monkey around with the potion. The resulting elixir sends Barnaby and his wife Edwina (Rogers) spiraling back to their wild teens and beyond, with Marilyn Monroe’s curvaceous secretary Miss Laurel causing a certain amount of bad blood between them.

The Misfits
at BFI Southbank in London!USA 1961Directed by John HustonWith Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Thelma Ritter, Eli WallachRunning time 125minCertificate PGAs the last completed film for both Monroe and Gable, Arthur Miller’s perceptive fable of unresolved lives has acquired its own melancholy legend. Adding Clift to its Reno-set story of drifters, divorcees and old cowboys almost seems like one lost soul too many for one movie, but his contribution as a rootless, self-destructive rodeo rider is almost unbearably poignant, perhaps the truest celluloid reflection of his off-screen personal travails.

Hi, did anyone go to watch any Marilyn's films this year at this cinema? I watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Bus Stop and Some Like it Hot so far. Suzie Kennedy was present in today's Some Like it Hot viewing too! I am going to this interesting event on 27th June - Marilyn Monroe Study Day: Understanding a Cultural Phenomenon

Anyone else is coming from this community?

Oh Kristina I wish I had known about the MM study day this weekend as I would have been very tempted! I see it is sold out darn it.

I've not been able to get up to London this last year to see any. Last one I saw there was The Prince and the Showgirl. AMAZING on the big screen.

Wowser - this week is a Marilyn movie fest here: https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/Online/default.a...k=marilynmonroe

Good grief - all these years I've been posting about the BFI films and wishing for an MM season and it looks like I have missed it :-(

Fav, I really wish you were there! Actually, I wish everyone from this community board was there! It was a fantastic experience. On Friday I had a bad case of food poisoning and thought I would not be able to make it on Saturday but despite ailments, I managed to get there. So it started at 12 o'clock and finished at 4pm. There were 4 different speakers: lecturers (Lucy Bolton and Pamela Church-Gibson), a writer Sarah Churchwell and programme Coordinator Laura Adams. They all presented Marilyn from a different aspect: Marilyn in nowadays culture, Marilyn as an actress, Marilyn and her sense of fashion, Marilyn as presented in various biographies. There were lots of videos and pictures shown, presentations were really well prepared. And what I liked the most how seriously the subject was analysed. I just loved Sarah, whose book The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe I am actually reading now, the way she debunked so many myths about Marilyn and how so many biographies are full of inaccuracies, inconsistencies and simply display so much rubbish information about Marilyn. It was an utterly pleasure sitting among other Marilyn's fans and understanding that even after so many years Marilyn remains as popular and needed as ever.

I highly recommend reading Sarah Churchwell's book! Also, if you are a fan of Gatsby, look up some presentation she did on you tube.

Oh, we were shown this one to present the era of 1955 (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Kristina, what a wonderful event it sounded like. I could kick myself for missing it. What a great shame. I am so glad you had such a good time and enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this wonderful report of the event. Again, I'm kicking myself (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/crybaby.gif)

Darn it, missed this too https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/Online/default.a...le::context_id=

Sorry Fav :( But I am sure BFI will organise something similar again seeing how popular it was.

Slightly off topic but today I went to Victoria and Albert museum to check out shoes exhibition: Pleasure and Pain and guess what? They are displaying a pair of Marilyn's worn shoes by Ferragamo! I searched online and they might be from Something's Got to Give shooting. They are white pumps and it's amazing how great they still look, though it's been almost 60 years since she wore them!
