I love all her movies, but at the moment im really liking 'how yo marry a millionaire'. She just makes me chuckle so much in that movie, she's a very talented comedienne and actress

Love Carrie

For me, Some Like It Hot goes without even saying.

That is not only Marilyns best movie of all time but the movie itself is the best movie of all time!!

But everyone knows that..... so I'd like to give a special mention to "gentlemen prefer blondes" I could honestly watch that film over and over again, it's such a joy to see.

Marilyn and Jane are just PERFECTLY cast together.

I also love, SYI, HTMAM, DBTK, and Niagra.

For me dont bother to knock was my fav! The reason being was Marilyn's performance. Everything was stripped down all the hype and glitter and got to the core of Marilyns true acting ability. Her true talent really shined and blew me away I hope it broke a lot of barriers for people who thought shes wasnt much of an actress.

I find this impossible to answer, because I love so many of her films in different ways. however, I'd like to put it in a good word for The Misfits. Probably Marilyn's most mature performance, although sad in a way too.

I voted for Bus Stop, because it's such a fine comedy! It makes me laugh and happy and Marilyn is very cute as Cherry... no I mean Cherie! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/busstop.gif)

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is also a movie which I like. There's no need to tell why, I think everybody knows that it simply rocks (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/throb.gif) (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/diamondsdancing.gif)

I voted 'Some Like It Hot', MM was funny and looked sexy.
She also had beauiful costumes, my favorites are the 'I Wanna Beloved By You' costume, 'Running Wild' costume and 'I'm Thru With Love' Costume.

Marilyn played and sung well, I love the songs from 'Some Like It Hot', my favorites are 'Running Wild', 'Some Like It Hot', 'I Wanna Beloved By You'. I liked the part were Tony Curtis and Marilyn are in theback of the train, with the big block of ice, with her funny quote: 'I always get the fuzzy end of lollipop.' Made me laugh (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) .

I voted the Misfits. It's very difficult to vote, I love all, but I voted for the Misfits. Don't know why, but I think about this movie everyday or thru the day, and think about Marilyn in this period.

As a movie, SLIH is her best without competition. Marilyn's best performance was in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes where she not only took the (not-so-)dumb-blonde thing to the extreme but also gave a virtuoso portrayal of a flesh-and-blood human being. It's truly one of the greatest comedic performances in film history.

Of course, she was so skilled she was good in just about anything (with the possible exception of River of No Return), and that's why I voted for the movie I like the best, not the movie I think Marilyn was at her best in.

Marilyn's best comedic performance by far (for me) was in Prince and The Showgirl!
Her timing is just genius!
Remember when she says "Oh, that poor hungarian...I do hope he gets his love back!" (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
I love the scene where she is just rambling on and on about the prince's hair while he is trying to bed her down! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/jumpymm.gif)
Beautiful performance in what is considered to be a rather average film!
But it is my favbopurite film...I like those political comedies...not alot of people understand it. I think you have to know a lot about the lead up to World War 1 in order to understand it.

Her best dramatic performance is in Bus Stop, even though it is a "comedy".
Those tears were real I tell you! No gliserine (spelt that wrong! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ) on that baby face!

But her BEST film was Some Like It Hot!

The film with the most artistic integrity was The Misfits...another one of my favourites!

Her most entertaining film was Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

...These are all my favourite films for different reasons...so its difficult to decide!

But one things for sure, her worst film was There's no Bussiness Like Showbussiness!
A close second is River Of No Return!
Awful, Awful films!
No wonder she left Hollywood a year later! I would have aswell!
No producer would put me in a piece of crap like that and get away with it!!!!
