Do you know where on film Marilyn loses an earring? Someone will probably get this very quickly.

37 people have viewed this question so far. I think I'll wait a little longer before I give the answer. Someone must know it.

Drum roll please: The answer is, On the Jack Benny Show, as soon as she comes out she's running onto the stage and her right earring falls off. She does the whole skit with just one earring on. marilynbybrandon_190.gif

During the Heat Wave number. He's trying to hide because it hurts. Later in the number she kisses him while he's behind the tree as a "Sorry". banana.gif

That was quick, Gabby:)

I love this scene, it shows how considerate she was towards others. She could have ignored that, say sorry afterwards but she even changed the whole number!Nevertheless, it must have hurt!
missmarilyn
I like that part, too. She was really sweet, and I bet he was a happy guy that day.
"Guess who kissed me."
"Who?"
"Marilyn
Monroe"

I think it was the guy who had the newspaper? Well, it was one of them.

I pretty much hate and often fast-forward the Heatwave number but I'll always watch that bit! It's so sweet of her, as you say Magdalena and I'm so glad it was kept in the film - otherwise it would have just been one of those anecdotes we'd all read but be unsure whether it was true or not.

Can't believe I've never noticed the earring on Benny's show!

And, if you watch it in really slow motion, frame by frame, you can watch the earring go flying off her ear. She even looks like she's trying to keep her left side towards the camera at first so that she hides her bare ear.

I have another one. In what movies was Marilyn seen wearing an ankle bracelet?
missmarilyn
Mostly all of her early movies.

Ladies of the Chorus
Ticket To Tomahawk
Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hey!
Love Happy

Not sure if there are any other movies.

Any idea what the bracelet looked like??
Or a picture?
missmarilyn
It was really simple.

Thanks Gabby.
Do we know if the bracelet has some sort of significance or was it just a favorite piece of hers for awhile?

Excellent Gabby. Add Monkey Business to the list too.
MissCaswell
And also Niagara. You can spot it in the scene where she's putting on her stockings while her husband is asleep.

I have another "Do you Know Where". Do you know where the two instances are that Marilyn's age is referred to as she becomes 50 years old? In other words, in two different instances, she is referred to in the future at 50 years old. What two instances?

Hi Alex,

I made a thread about some time ago. There is quite a collection of pictures of MM (and others) wearing the ankle bracelet:

By the way I later saw her referring to it as "the slave bracelet"...
(Whatever she meant by that.)

That's right Madga. Well done. Who knows the other one?
lorileime
O.K. Since no one answered, here's the other one. When Marilyn did the radio show with Charlie McCarthy, they say somewhere in the show that congress is looking into passing a law that will prevent Marilyn from marrying anyone until she's 50. The law will be called the New Monroe Doctrine.
