Everlasting Star Community _ Marilyn's movies _ Don't Bother To Knock

Posted by: Bobby Jun 3 2008, 07:55 PM

'Film Noir' was not a genre Marilyn featured in very often but her impressively real performance in 1952's Don't Bother to Knock begs the question, why not? She is so vividly believeable as troubled babysitter Nell Forbes that one can't help but feel somewhat scared by the worrying look in her beautiful eyes. Before the seductive darling of celluloid dreams, before the glamour girl of technicolour glory, there was a young and raw actress in her very first starring role. This is that role. But you wouldn't believe it...

I know this one is very popular with the MM fans for several reasons - and I'm one of those admirers. It's so blatantly different (though of course there are certain obvious murderous similarities with Rose Loomis) to any other role Marilyn played and she was so convincing as Nell. She played the part so very well and the sheer quality of her performance makes it frankly remarkable that it was her first leading role. What did you think?

I love this movie, especially Marilyn's performance (plus, I'm a fan of film noir.) She conveys Nell's fragile state beautifully, particularly in the early scenes where she is in the hotel room, and then the final scenes when she comes to her senses. Those moments make you realise that Marilyn was an actress who didn't need words, she is so naturally expressive. Richard Widmark is excellent too, and I liked Anne Bancroft. It was quite a low-budget film and that shows with some of the more melodramatic dialogue and so on. But it's definitely worth seeing to realise Marilyn's true talent as an actress, before she got typecast as the dumb blonde. I love the comedies as well but I think a lot of non-fans would be surprised at how different she is here, and how convincing too.

this is yet another one of my favorite marilyn movies. her performance is amazing and the overall movie is very well put together. this character is nothing like any of the other characters she ever played and i love it.

Posted by: bruno Jun 3 2008, 09:11 PM

I also consider it is one of her best performances. She is heartbreaking, especially at the end, and I am certain that with a less blind studio, she would have been offered other roles of that quality. But this would have been another story.

Posted by: lorileime Jun 3 2008, 09:51 PM

Yes, I agree. Marilyn does a nice job with this movie. She does still show a very raw sort of talent, but what's captivating is the fact that she is so inexperienced as an actor and still manages to make us want to help Nell and keep her safe. She definitely tapped into the disturbed psyche of the character and did a nice job developing it. One thing I would have loved is if this movie were filmed in color. Somehow I feel that color would have played it up a little more with a little more dramatic shock value here and there (like a really red penoir or the contrast between Nell's dull blue uniform and the mother's colorful party dress to make Nell seem small and insignificant. One thing I didn't care for too much is the way Marilyn over-annunciates her dialogue in this movie. It would have been better to be a little more messy. Overall, a very nice film with a nice music score (which I wish we could get on cd).

I have just finished watching this film and I am shocked--literally. I've said to myself before that Marlyn's talent was stiffled by the execs at 20th Century Fox and her true talent never really got the chance to blossom as many of the following movies all seemed to have the similar 'comedic blonde' aspect placed in them. Don't Bother To Knock however, despite its short runtime had me gripped, eagerly awaiting the aftermath of the events that took place in the film. Marilyn performed her role so well, to the point, where it really 'tugged on my heart strings' if you know what I mean and I experienced some emotional chemistry there huh.gif

Sorry I do ramble sometimes lol, but I really liked this movie. Being a new fan and all - still yet to see all of Marilyn's movies - I was just so impressed by this film.

That is all I need to say.

This must be one of the MM films that I've watched the most. She is amazing! The scene where she hears the plane outside and goes to the window, and there's a tear on her cheek. shock.gif It is the most impressive scene in the film. I love it.

Posted by: Tara Jun 4 2008, 05:20 PM

This one is definitely a fan favourite! thumbup1.gif

Posted by: Garbo20 Jun 4 2008, 05:41 PM

This is my favourite MM movie, I was totally impressed with her after watching it, she was sooooo soooooo good and made a real sinister atmospher.

Posted by: Cello Jun 4 2008, 11:26 PM

This, I think, is probably Marilyn's best dramatic performance. The script wasn't that great, just mediocre. But Marilyn made the film very watchable. She was amazing.

And she didn't play a "dumb blonde."

Posted by: abeautifulchild Jun 5 2008, 01:06 AM

Well Marilyn was excellent, of course. Her emotions came through perfectly, her facial expressions and body language really made Nell come alive. She was such a natural talent- and she shows that here. She really made this movie worthwhile. I enjoyed Anne Bancroft in this too. I don't know if I would say that this is Marilyn's best dramatic performance though...


Posted by: meztisa Jun 5 2008, 11:38 PM

This movie was soo creepy! I completely forgot I was watching "Marilyn Monroe". I spent the whole time saying to myself, "What in the WORLD is wrong with this lady?!"

Definately an Oscar-worthy performance! biggrin.gif

I agree, her performance in this movie is perfectly amazing, and it's the proof, if needed, that Marilyn was able to play any characters, in any kind of movies. clapping.gif

One of Marilyn's best dramatic performances, it would have been so easy to go over the top with this role but instead marilyn managed to make Nell both sympathetic and dangerous.

Posted by: Kowalczyk Jul 12 2008, 02:45 PM

I agree with every word arsena1 wrote. I just finished watching this today and was blown away by Marilyn's acting. One moment you want to hug Nell and the next you're frightened of her. This is definitely a new favourite of mine.

Posted by: MissCaswell Jul 12 2008, 05:36 PM

Marilyn's performance in this one reminds me a little of the one she gives 8 years later, in the Misfits (this comparison also gives an idea of the pace in which Marilyn's talent developed and matured - imagine if she had lived longer, what she could have done and been!). The character's pain and and loneliness is so apparent, and even in Nell's "dangerous" moments I just want to hold her and make her feel safe. Marilyn may have been a comedic genius, but it is in her few dramatic parts that she really gets to me.

Exactly my thoughts too smile1.gif

I LOVE this film , her acting in it is amazing, and I think she should've got more credit for it,
But did anyone else notice Richard Widmards obsession with rye? It's all he ever talks about ohmy.gif

Posted by: audreyfan1 Nov 4 2008, 10:53 PM

DBTK is definitely my favourite of Marilyn's early performaces! (If not my favourite Marilyn film of all!). It's so different from her other performances and I think that it could very well have been the beginning of a successful dramatic career for her.

I love this film and I think I've watched it more than any of her other films!

Posted by: jemaniac Nov 4 2008, 11:34 PM

I just love DBTK. It makes me sad though... because I wish Marilyn had been given more roles like Nell. She was never given the chance to show her full range as an actress. I mean, she's so convincing in this film, and it's very early in her career... just think what she could have done a few years later.

I'm just watching this right now. I just wondered, does anyone else find Uncle Eddie a bit creepy at times? When he came in and caught her trying on Mrs Jones outfit and said something about "If I had some girl like you". Was it supposed to be a 'figure of speech' or something else? It never mentions whether he is her uncle by blood or marriage but Nell seems like she has had problems with her parents (folks) as well.

What does everyone else think?

I never considered that Eddie might not be Nell's real Uncle. Interesting. I always saw Eddie as a family member who wants - and is trying - to help his niece but Nell's problems are too deep for him to deal with, just as they were for her parents. He's out of his depth but he does want the best for poor Nell. I can see where you're coming from but it's not something I've noticed previously.

Posted by: Scottish Sugar Jun 3 2009, 08:30 PM

No again, I just think Uncle Eddie is meant to be another 'good guy' in the film, just looking out for Nell, I think the general idea is that Nell is meant to be the most derranged in the film, having another sinister character in the movie might take away from that.
Who knows though!

Actually I find Eddie a bit unlikable too. Mostly in the way he is always criticising Nell and putting her down, though his intentions may be genuine and good. People tended to look on mental illness as shameful at that time. And he must have known that she was not suited to caring for anyone else - seemed almost like he set her up so that she'd be taken back to hospital. Watching it again the other day and I also noticed what she said about her family and upbringing - she became upset every time she mentioned them, seemed like she had been mistreated in some way. It brought out another dimension to her character, and kind of explained her coldness towards the little girl. Maybe she was re-enacting what was done to her as a child. I'm sure there were quite a few women like Nell who lost their sweethearts during the war and never recovered, and were constantly misunderstood by others. That's what makes her relationship with Jed so moving, he starts off viewing her in a cynical way but ends up being kinder. There's much more to her story than meets the eye. And I think Marilyn's final scene is among the best work of her career, no wonder Anne Bancroft enjoyed acting with her so much.

I agree with you Tara RE: Eddie, but I also feel that his character appears to be a bit under-developed in the first place. :/

That's true, in fact I think the film as a whole could have been better if the studio had taken more time over it. I like it a lot and some of the acting is great, but it still has that B-movie feel. A wonderful role for for Marilyn though.

Posted by: Sweet Charity Nov 2 2009, 12:31 PM

I love this movie and I think Marilyn did a great work here, she played very well Nell, this fragile and disturbed girl and she and Widmark were a beautiful couple. It's a shame that this movie isn't so known, it's a shame that Marilyn is remembered for other kind of characters.

Posted by: NormaJeanLove. Nov 2 2009, 07:13 PM

^ I know I love this movie so much, Its a really dark movie for marilyn, i mean compaired to her other work, whenever i tell people to watch a marilyn movie i always say, please get dont bother to knock, and see how great of a actress she was in this film, and i think she should have gotten more roles like these. its really more serious, and she could do it. i really like this movie!

Posted by: audreyfan1 Nov 2 2009, 10:52 PM

^Me too. Over the summer one of my friends actually asked if I would watch a Marilyn movie with him. I think he was just sick of me constantly talking about Marilyn when he really doesn't know who she is. And I showed him all of my Marilyn dvds and explained what each movie was about and told him to pick the one he wanted to watch. He was torn between DBTK and Niagara, so I told him to watch DBTK and he LOVED it!! Now he wants to watch some more of Marilyn's movies. He was really blown away by her talent. He actually told me after we watched it that he was very surprised at how good she is in this movie because he was under the impresison that Marilyn was a horrible actress. I'm so happy I changed his mind smile1.gif

Posted by: NormaJeanLove. Nov 4 2009, 06:01 AM

He should definately see niagara next, keep with the deeper stuff first, hehe. thats a good way to get people in, because everyone only thinks she did dumb blonde ditzy roles, and its just not true. she did have a great talent, and would have continued this, if she did not pass away.

Go to YouTube and check out the opening scores for the movies Don't Bother to Knock and Panic in the Streets. They are both easy to look up, just type in the titles. Sound Familiar? Oops, I can't believe this. I just went to try it so I could add the URL and it's gone. Since just yesterday, YouTube removed it. But, the point is, the opening music for both of these movies is exactly the same score. Panic was done in 1950, two years before Knock and in the first movie the credit for score went to Alfred Newman and in the second, Lionel Newman. Does anyone have any info as to why they would do that? Try this http://blip.tv/retrovision-theater/retrovision-theater-presents-panic-in-the-streets-1950-2358091 for one of them. Here's the other one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NX__HFE6V4

Posted by: lorileime Jun 24 2011, 12:08 PM

I am in the middle of reading the original story for Don't Bother. A story called Mischief, written in 1948. The plot is different from the movie and the character of Nell is a very wicked girl who used a lot of profanity. Jed and Lyn are together but in the book, they go out to a restaurant for dinner and have a fight. She leaves him at the restaurant and he goes back to the hotel where he spots Nell across the court. Nell is staying with Eddie and his wife Marie. She is from Indiana, not Oregon, and she is there because her house burned down and her parents were killed, not because her boyfriend died in a plane crash. So far it has not been revealed if she ever tried to kill herself. I am at the part now where the older lady who lived across the court actually goes to Nell's room and demands to see that the child, Bunny, is o.k. Jed slips out of Bunny's room and Nell tells the lady that he forced his way into her room and was holding her hostage. After Jed gets away, he meets Lyn again, who has been at the hotel in the lobby waiting for him to return. They start to leave and Jed gets a feeling of remorse and decides to go back upstairs because he can't leave after having left Bunny tied up in the room with Nell and the lady. While all this is going on, the lady (Miss Ballew) calls the hotel desk and tells them that a man has escaped from Nell's room. A man that had intruded into her room. Now the house detective is looking for him. Before Jed gets back upstairs, Mrs. Jones, Bunny's mother, has come back to the hotel because, of course, she has a 'feeling' in her bones tha something is wrong. She left Mr. Jones at the convention. Mrs. J makes it up to the room before Jed. When she sees Miss Ballew, who she has never met, she instantly goes into the adjoining room and finds Bunny bound and gagged with Nell sitting over her. Nell was just about to do something to Bunny to be sure that Bunny couldn't tell her side of the story (Strangle her, it's not clear in the book). Mrs. Jones grabs Nell by the hair and they have the fight that we see in the movie. Jed comes in and separates them, as in the movie, but right behind Jed, the house detective comes in while Jed is holding Nell by the hair. He tells Jed to release her and he says no, so the detective shoots Jed. Apparently a grazing shot. This is basically the end of the drama. They call a hospital to pick up Nell. Uncle Eddie wakes up from the knock on the head and affirms that Nell must be put away. Lyn comes up to the room and she and Jed decide that they had better stay together. They all have a drink and one by one they leave the Joneses alone. The end. The whole part about Nell getting away and going to the lobby and stealing the razor blades so she can kill herself, NEVER HAPPENED IN THE BOOK. All in all, I think the movie was much better than the original story and I really love Marilyn's acting in it much more. (I mean, I did love it already but now I wonder if she read the original because she really seemed to get the character). If anyone ever has a chance to read the book, it is worth it. Author's name is Charlotte Armstrong.

I'm watching it again now on TCM. I love this movie. Marilyn is so underrated in this film! Its DOES have a B movie feel because, yes the studio didn't give it much thought, just churned it out. M plays Nell so well. I love when she looks straight at the girl and moves towards her. This is the scene when the girl surprises her and Jed by coming into the room. And oh, now is the scene when she's at the window with the girl and places her hand on the girl's back ever so slowly and gently. It's so creepy the way M does it. She does it so well. Eeesh. Wow she was soo good in this.

I really do enjoy Marilyn in dramatic roles, this one being one of her best. There are times while watching this movie that I'm chilled to the bone by how unsettling and disturbing the character is, especially when she's interacting with the little girl. I can only imagine how difficult it may have been for Marilyn to have to act so forcefully to the little girl - even though they're both acting. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite Marilyn movies.

I like old movies more and more! Thanks to Marilyn!

Yes! Her hair are really beautiful there. More natural.

Ilike almost everything about this movie. The first time I watched it I wasn't much fascinated but when I watched it later i started to love it. Her performance (I must mention the exception of her "artificial" movement of the lips! It would be much better without it for this role ), the music is good, the scenery the story...

I started to watch my DVD of this (will continue) it's been a while since I've watched it. Marilyn's acting ability is already there in this early film, and in other early films. I'm always mystified about the 'dumb blonde' aspect and wanting to be a real actress later - in my book she already WAS a good actress.

I wonder really if she was stamped as the 'dumb blonde' after Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire and even Seven Year Itch- the first two not favourites of mine.

I've recently read Laurence Olivier's comments about Marilyn and even Lee Strasberg that M wasn't a trained actress. Seem to remember she had acting lessons in LA separately and also through the film studios - in fact I think she even acted on stage a few times in those early days.

I suppose she was type cast at a point and had to get away from that.

Anyway - I think M is really good in Don't Bother To Knock.

Marilyn wanted to do more dramatic roles than the ones Fox typecasted her in. Silly comedies, with her sexy Monroe persona highlighted. Reason she left Fox and got married in 1954, and later moved in the Greens in 1955.

Yes, Fox had a money making formula with M in her 'dumb blonde' roles smothering the artist she was within - poor M - everything such a struggle for her




Interesting - have just been watching an old BBC tv documentary about film directors - George Cukor said that Marilyn was intelligent and a talented actress and didn't need all the training she later got. He said acting education had its place but Marilyn was already ok. -which is what I said.

And was it Billy Wilder? who said of M: before all the psychoanalysis and training from the actor's studio she was like a tight rope walker who didn't know the ground was there and maybe she would fall or fail but afterwards she knew - same when acting in her films. If you think of all the films she made in quick succession at the beginning of her career, but not many at the end - he has a point.
