Article from TALENT magazine May, 1959. On MM's 1st working day in Hollywood in 4 years, a recording session for the song "Runnin' Wild". Pretty interesting insight on MM behind the scenes.

The only think is, Arthur Miller their saying "hi" and she introducing him as his husband when the whole world knew about it? Plus, Marilyn smoking .She smoked occasionally as far as we know, but I find it weird that she did smoke at this precise moment. Singers know it is awful for the voice, one notices the efect on the voice instantly.
The article is very interesting indeed. But I wonder if it wasn´t made up. Maybe it wasn´t anyway. Just my thoughts.

Sometimes introducing a person is just a way of saying, he's my friend and he's one of us. Whereas if Marilyn hadn't introduced Arthur, people might have felt wary of approaching him. He was quite a reserved man and Marilyn's introduction probably helped to break the ice.

Another thing that struck me from Megan's article is how at ease Marilyn seemed in the recording studio, compared to on the set. Far more confident, and not so tense. She seemed to get along better with musicians than directors!

Speaking of Runnin Wild, the original song is much long than what Marilyn is heard singing in the movie and I have a feeling that she recorded the whole song and they cut it down to the first couple of stanzas and last stanza. There might be a lot more of it out there, I hope.

Although it's Marilyn's most famous movie and a great comedy, I still prefer Seven Year Itch over Some Like It Hot. The first reason is may be because I like more these kinds of urban comedies as Seven Years Itch and a second reason I watched Some Like it Hot so many times that I simply got sick of course not of Marilyn.

Same here, KingAl. I think The Seven Year Itch is way funnier than Some Like It Hot. It seems like it may be a generational thing. Most younger people (in their 20's and younger) who I know who've seen both films seem to like SYI over SLIH. I think it may have something to do with society's more accepting attitude towards trans people. I mean, most of the comedy in SLIH centers around "look at Joe and Jerry demeaning themselves by dressing in women's clothes and acting feminine! Isn't that just hold your sides hilarious?! Jack Lemmon's having trouble with his bra!!! Ha ha ha! Tony Curtis in high heels! Isn't that hilarious!!! Ha ha ha ha!" Today, kids look at that and go "so two guys are acting feminine and wearing dresses. I don't get it. What's the big deal?" Cross-dressing isn't something that many people find funny anymore...it's just normal.

Personally, I much prefer Some like it Hot :
I think the Seven year Itch is way too long, and just 'quite funny', with a bit easy and heavy jokes,
whereas Some Like it Hot is sometimes really hilarious, and much more risky, especially at the time it was released.
Plus Monroe look at the beginning of SLH is just astonishing (though I don't like her so much in the yacht scenes...).

She does look gorgeous at the beginning and her singing is nice, although she was a bit overweight but we must take into account that she was pregnant during filming. The other thing is that SYI could have been much greater comedy than it was if they didn't censored the original Broadway script.

For me, Some Like It Hot is timeless and I feel when I'm watching it like I'm there, like I feel like I have transported back to the 1920s and away from today's reality. I forget about reality because I'm enjoying it so much. That is an amazing thing I think for a film to be able to do. Not many can for me. And I still find it so hilarious, I can feel myself smiling the whole time that Marilyn, Jack and Tony are on screen and the gangster scenes are so brilliantly acted too. Everything about the film was perfect in every way. I would love to one day see it on the big screen as some local cinemas show the classics. And I am so glad it is still being voted the best comedy ever! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/throb.gif)
