Review:

Well, I got a wonderful surprise today as a friend sent me this documentary which I have wanted for so long. For anyone who likes The Misfits, it's a must-have. Interviewees include Arthur Miller, Eli Wallach, Nan Taylor, Inge Morath, Eve Arnold, and Angela Allen. There is also some rare footage from the location.

There was a nice story about how Arthur came out from watching the rushes, and said 'Wasn't Marilyn fantastic in her close-up?' In fact there were three other actors on camera, but Arthur only had eyes for his wife.

Sad points included Gable's death, of course, and the collapse of Arthur and Marilyn's marriage. Angela Allen said that Marilyn treated Arthur 'despicably', but then she was very unhappy at the time. It's sad that their relationship had to end in such ugliness, but this is what often happens when people fall out of love.

Definitely one of the best documentaries out there and well worth watching. The Misfits is one of my favourite Marilyn movies, because despite its flaws, and the pain it caused for everyone, it is probably her most fully realised performance. It gives me a tantalising hint of the great actress she could have become - although what she achieved was remarkable enough.


Overall note: 5 out of 5 Stars

Wow, that sounds fantastic! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Do you know if you're able to buy it anywhere, or is it purely a TV Doc which I'd have to look out for?
