Oh gosh I remember having this show, recorded off the tv on videotape but they dubbed her into English!

Look at this one though. Laurence Olivier - patronising man! You can really see through this how he treated her. No wonder she was upset about working with him and called him Mr Sir: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmFL0hfLBC0

The Olivier interview was thoroughly annoying.
Dear Larry was well known to be a foul-mouthed bully when directing.
Marilyn was looking forward to working with one of her theatrical heroes, but Paula's constant interference lead to the unpleasant situations.
Paula would frequently tell Marilyn to do a scene Paula's way - not Marilyn's or Olivier's way.
Marilyn was not "always late" as Olivier states. Yes, she was late on a handful of occasions usually after an attack of her Endometriosis, which left her in great pain and groggy from the medication.
"No assistants" to act as Alarm Clocks ? The Directors' runner, Colin Clarke, had this as one of his duties, as had the Duty Floor Manager.
Also there to assist at various times were myself, or Paula, Hedda Rosten, Milton Greene or Arthur Miller.
We all knew that Marilyn no sense of elapsed time and needed gentle prodding!
The irony is that Marilyn was paying Olivier's wages !

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif) Thank you Alan for sharing this. Hope you will share more of your MM recollections as well. In fact, you should make a topic here to share them so they will be all in one place.

ps: I can't see pictures at all on the forum now. Is anyone else still having the problem?
