Hmmmm, hard to say because in her films her talent was squashed and boxed by Fox. It would have been sooooo wonderful if she had been able to fulfill her contract with Fox and move on to better and more meatier roles without the dumb blonde box. Having said that, I'd have to say (it's hard to pick 1 film!):

Some Like it Hot

Bus Stop

Something's Got to Give (if only...)

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Don't Bother to Knock

It's hard to pick 1!!!!!!

I like "Gentlemen prefer Blondes" and "Some like it hot" the most. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/thumbup1.gif)

I just love how Jane and Marilyn got along, this movie is pure fun and when Marilyn has her big moment on screen with "Diamonds are..."....it´s just perfect....I just get tears in my eyes, when I see it. What a wonderful woman she was. I don´t know if I´m the only one, who gets this reaction at some parts in her movies. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/jumpymm.gif)

And in "Some like it hot" I could always burst into tears, cause I have to laugh so hard about Marilyn, Jack and Tony....

I don´t like "We´re not married" and "There´s no business...." that much....I just find the stories boring and I´m only watching the scenes with MM in it... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/coolio.gif)

It really IS hard to pic just one...in no particular order:

GPB - the chemistry between MM and Jane Russell is amazing (and MM has some super cute line deliveries)
SLIH - it's just too too funny
Bus Stop - one of her best acting roles, she's so vulnerable and tender and yet so tough. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif)

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

I'd like to shake hands with whoever voted There No Business Like Show Business. I haven't even watched that yet, the idea of listening to Ethel Merman for a complete film is too off putting. Ethel Merman and fog horn belong in the same sentence.

(IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif) I just love MM movies period -- she is so beautiful and magical on the screen, like it was made just for her.
I never thought of her as dumb or cheap or ugly in any way. It would've been nice to see her do more of the kind of roles she wanted to do.
I am voting for Niagara because she's so awesome in it and it's the very first movie I saw of hers.

For me, it's still Ladies of the Chorus. Her 1st movie where she had a big role, and 1st movie that showcased her singing/dancing abilities.

"Every baby needs a da, da, daddy" she puts so much emotion into the song. Also love the song "Anyone can see I Love you."

The scenes below show her true sweetness. When she receives flowers from an admirer.
