Editorial Reviews

Poppy Montgomery, Patricia Richardson, Ann-Margret and Patrick Dempsey head a stellar cast, as this acclaimed mini-series based on the best-selling novel by Joyce Carol Oates comes to DVD. Dramatic, unsettling and suggestive, this provocative miniseries delivers all of the passion, mystery, tragedy and triumph that defined the all-too-brief life of an immortal legend.

She was Hollywood's most exquisitely packaged and ruthlessly sold sex symbol. Every man wanted her, and every woman wanted to be her. But did anyone really know her? ‘Blonde’ goes behind the scenes, drawing a sharp-eyed picture of the movie business from the 1940's through the 50's to reveal how a shy, lonely girl named Norma Jean Baker was transformed into legendary platinum bombshell “Marilyn Monroe”.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent... March 13, 2007
Format:DVD
It seems that most die-hard Marilyn Monroe fans dislike this movie because it doesn't tell her true story, and it bends some facts and dates to fit the story. While that's true, you have to remember that this is based on Joyce Carol Oates novel, "Blonde", which is a fictional account of Marilyn Monroe's life. The novel and the movie are both intended as works of fiction and shouldn't be read as a biography of her life and work. If that's what you're looking for, then pick up a biography (you have plenty to choose from). Otherwise, this is a decent, entertaining movie. Personally, I prefer the novel, but I'm a pretty big fan of Joyce Carol Oates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blonde May 29, 2008
Format:DVD
This was a truly amazing movie about Marilyn Monroe. I had seen the movie on Lifetime Movie Network and loved it. I looked everywhere for the movie and was thrilled when I found it on Amazon. Poppy Montgomery does an outstanding portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. The movie was a bit long but well worth it. I don't know how anyone could watch this movie and not fall in love with Marilyn Monroe. Outstanding!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining May 28, 2006
Format:DVD
Poppy Montgomery did a wonderful job acting in this film. I really enjoyed being a diehard Marilyn fan myself, but...there are a few flaws in the film. Some of the sequences and dates in the film don't exactly happen as it really did. As with any other hollywood film the real story was switched around to fit the director's prespective. I thought it was good but not good enough. If you want an *idea* of what Marilyn was like this would be good. But for the accurate and unaltered story I suggest picking up a book about her.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story! March 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay. For starters this isn't a documentary or a biography style film about Marilyn. Some of the characters were real people and some of the situations real, but for the most part it is a work of fiction. For instance they changed the name of her real life agent Johnny Hyde. They also never mention Joe DiMaggio or Arthur Miller by name at all. With all that being said, honestly, I thought it was a great story. Poppy Montgomery didn't do too bad of a job playing Marilyn. They got a lot of Marilyn's emotional hang ups right; her constant search for a father figure within her love life, her intense insecurity, and the fact that she never really felt the persona of Marilyn Monroe suited her. It just wasn't her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poppy Montgomer IS Marilyn! March 12, 2012
Format:DVD
Absolutely stunning performance by Poppy Montgomery ... she so totally captures the enigmatic and beautiful Marilyn.
And the movie stays true to Joyce Carol Oates' wonderful, 5-star novel "Blonde."

4.0 out of 5 stars blonded again May 14, 2011
By buckie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
let's face it..there are alot of "marilyn" films out there and most are just awful,with the exception that featured actress Hicks about ten[!] years ago.this is somewhat interesting and poppy montgomery certanly captured a sensitive portrait of monroe.there are times it's "HER"!but none o these films as well as this ever probe ino the horror of filming "the misfits",which certainly would have made the script more interesting.and the "hidden"storyline losely ivolving the kennedy brothers is silly. the gloss of her life is there and this actress is worth watcing but it's still the old tired tale just as the others.it's worth the price however seeing this actress compliment the sensitive insight into this woman's life.

I bought this movie for one reason- Jensen Ackles! He and Patrick Dempsey were in a three-way with Poppy Montgomery, so that's why I gave it five stars!
