Yes I agree. There is a guy who has it for sale. You can get a hold of him via the web. He says that the footage is very grainy, but I think there are six hours in total. I can email you his web address if you pm me. I think the last time I asked about it he wanted $50.00 US and I didn't get it because he said it was grainy.


Do you happen to know how grainy we're talking, Tony?
Because if the film is obviously visible then I might be interested...I have a birthday coming up. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I just watch "Something's got to give" and i can't believe i've never seen it before. I think Marilyn looks so beautiful and you can tell that she is very slim from what she else to look like. I love the Swedish accent where she pretends to be Inga Tic.

There are almost nine hours of known outtakes and footage for this film. It exists out there as a bootleg - take after take after take of the same scene that are simply fascinating to watch. Throughout it all, Marilyn is the consummate professional. Some of it is on YouTube - here is an example: http://www.youtube.com/user/77marked#p/u/0/TPqsaaJVcgE

It's so sad that this would've been her best movie ever and she didn't even get to finish it :(

The links that are in this thread have been ended so here is links I have to the 40 minute "finished" version of SGTG. I love this movie. I think Marilyn is radiant. I love she uses her own voice and moves away from the breathy MM "character" of her earlier films.

The thing that amazed me is with so little time they still had a lot done-and MM is absolutely gorgeous in it. Fox misrepresented her absense and performance in my opinion.

I have seen the Doris Day version as a kid and I loved it -but I think the MM & DM combination would have been superior and exquisite. The swimming scene would have put this film on par with 7 Year Itch IMO. I also think Marilyn was maturing in her performance and relying on her talent and acting insticts and I think this would have been a good step for her beyond the sex goddess to getting respect as a comedienne. Plus her renegotiated contract of 2 more pics at 1 million a pop-recognized her star quality-and with paying her the big bucks I am sure Fox would have found 2 great films for Marilyn. This film shows all the promise of some great years ahead for Marilyn had she lived. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif)

I hate the fact that this movie was never finished because I think that it would have been a very funny movie, even better than the original. Marilyn's acting seems so natural and I can really see how much she has evolved as an actress. I am going crazy every time I watch the edited version because I really want to see how it ends.

One thing I find quite different about Marilyn in this film is that she does use her natural speaking voice. Looking at the scene with Dean Martin by the swimming pool, the whole "Why don't you think about telling her that your wife's back! No that wouldn't occur to you would it?!" is said in a really strong voice rather than her usual whispery tone. I personally think this is better and it shows that Marilyn was making a stand to be taken more seriously as an actress.

I found this interview with one of the screenwriters (Arnold Schulman) who worked on the script for 'Something's Got To Give'.


I know from reading David Brown's autobiography, 'Let Me Entertain You', that you had at least one not-marvelous experience in Hollywood in the sixties, working with Cukor again, this time on the last, never-completed Marilyn Monroe picture: 'Something's Got to Give'.
I haven't read David's book, but I've been told he said I wore a kimono and sat on the floor when I wrote. Clearly, I was crazy, so he fired me. I still wear a kimono and sit on the floor when I write, and lots of people think I'm crazy— maybe I am—but David and I recall the situation differently. Actually, I quit. Cukor wanted me because we had such a good experience on the Magnani picture, but when I found out what they were doing to Marilyn, I quit. They were setting her up. A guy from the advertising business named Peter Levathes had come in as head of the studio, having taken over from [Spyros] Skouras, who was kicked out, as I recall, because Cleopatra [1963] went so much over budget. Levathes had to prove himself a hero. He had to prove he wouldn't take any shit from any star. He wanted to humiliate Marilyn into quitting and then sue her, I was told.
You were Marilyn's friend?
From way back. I met her when she first left Hollywood and came to join the Actors Studio. I got a call one night from Lee Strasberg, and he said, "I've got two tickets to a poetry reading at the Y. I can't go. Will you take the person I'm supposed to go with?" I said, "Sure." I had no idea it was Marilyn until she opened the door. This was at the peak of her fame. I didn't have a car or anything, so we had to catch a cab. We got mobbed. We finally got to the Y. I'm thinking, "Why does she want to go to theY? Why didn't Lee tell me who I was going with?" And, of course, the program couldn't go on, because everybody left their seats to catch a glimpse of her. We escaped through a side door and ran up the street with a mob chasing us, and finally wound up on 125th Street in a dinky Chinese restaurant I knew about. That's how I met her, and we became good friends.
What was her condition at the time when you were working on the script? Was she deteriorating, as everybody has written?
I didn't see any of that. When I was with her, she was bright, warm and loving, and in good shape.
She wasn't demanding?
Not at all.
She was on time for everything?
She didn't have to be on time. This wasn't even preproduction. I hadn't written a word. But her agent would call and request things—I remember one thing in particular—and Fox would deliberately say no, doing everything to make her quit. She wanted her regular hairdresser, I remember. No—she couldn't have her regular hairdresser. Whatever she wanted, the rule was, she couldn't have it. Gradually, it became clearer and clearer what was going on—and then I overheard conversations about it between the executives. As soon as I realized it, I went ape. I think I grabbed David Brown, who is about two feet taller than I am, and shook him against the wall; if not, I wanted to, which is probably closer to the truth. I called Marilyn and told her. She understood what was happening, but there was nothing she could do about it.
You think they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams—driving her to her death?
It's not that cut and dried. But they certainly didn't contribute to her will to live.
Cukor was party to this?
He knew about it.
That's shocking.
The whole thing was shocking to me. She asked me to come back and write the picture and be on her side. I told her I was on her side, and that is why I got out of it. I told her she had to get out of it. "If I go back," I told her, "I'm powerless." I have terrible guilt about that experience, still. Terrible guilt. The lingering feeling, however irrational, that if I had gone back, I might have made a difference, and she might still be alive today.

Such a pity for this film! I bet Marilyn would be wonderful. I'm amazed but Happy to see that some of those scenes are popular (like the swimming pool scene) and film never wasn't on screen (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/coolio.gif)

Has Fox ever thought about releasing outtakes from Marilyn's films with this studio? Surely their vault would contain some material that hasn't been destroyed? I have seen the ones from SGTG and SYI but none others. I know Liz Smith has noted this in her articles too, but have any other rare outtakes ever been released?

Out-takes would be great but instead of that how about restoring the scenes taken out of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Bus Stop? I'd love to see those.

Yes, those too! It would have been wonderful if some film company had thought of releasing a DVD of all this footage for the 50th anniversary of her death last year as a commemoration.

I'm quite surprised to see many of you think this would have been her best film, I think it would have been one of her worst. Not only did she look ill (underweight) but it seemed to be taking a step backwards. Marilyn wanted to be taken seriously, in my opinion appearing nude would have gone against her. When you think of the actresses that did appear nude (Jayne Mansfield being the first), Marilyn was in a totally different league to them. Marilyn didn't need this film or the scene, in my opinion it would have been a disaster. The media would have focused on the nude swim and no matter how well she acted playing a mother, it would have been overshadowed by the pool scene.
