Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Monroe gives an acclaimed performance in the romantic classic directed by Joshua Logan that features Don Murray in his Oscarr-Nominated role! When Bo (Murray) a naive rodeo rider, meets saloon performer Cherie (Monroe), he falls head over boots in love. After her literally lassoes Cherie onto a bus headed for Montana, where he plans to marry her, Cherie escapes of the bus - smack in the middle of a snowstorm. But if Bo can learn to reign in his emotions, he might convince Cherie to warm up to him in this rewarding film.

By Duane
Many critics now say that it's a crime that Marilyn Monroe was never nominated for an Academy Award. Her not being nominated for her performance in "Bus Stop" is proof.
Today, we often see actors starring in movies that require them to speak with a certain accent, and their accents come-and-go during the movie. You wont find that here. Marilyn's hillbilly accent remains throughout the film, and it's a very realistic one. Initially, Marilyn's costume was an expensive getup created by the studio, but she herself went to a second-hand shop and found an outfit that she believed her character would actually wear. And, she agreed that she should wear the white, chalky make-up that she does in the film, as her character is one who sleeps during the day (never sees sunlight) and works at night.
Marilyn displays a wide range of emotions in this film--happiness, sexiness, sadness, excitement, and downright anger--and we feel every one of them. I dont think any other actress could have done a better job in the role.
The entire cast is excellent as well. The role of "Grace" is a scene-stealer!

5.0 out of 5 stars BUS STOP CORRECT RATIO June 10, 2013
Marilyn is undoubtedly at her best in this great motion picture. One correction to other comments - BUS STOP is full 2.35:1 Cinemascope, not 1.85:1. Be assured that those prone closeups are seen in their full glory - and Marilyn's performance of "That Old Black Magic" is SUPPOSED to be bad. It remains gloriously awful and one of THE great movie scenes.

William Inge's BUS STOP had a 478 performance run on Broadway between 3/2/55 and 4/21/56. Production on Joshua Logan's film version began prior to the stage show's close. This was the movie debut of both Hope Lange and Don Murray. Edw. G. Robinson Jr. has an uncredited cameo as a rodeo cowboy.

Marilyn Monroe's superb performance as an Ozark Mountain gal working her way due west to Hollywood is compromised by a single script flaw. Off-key saloon singer 'Cherie' has for a couple of days been terrorized by yahooing Montana cowboy 'Bo' Decker (Murray), who blew into Phoenix to appear in a rodeo. After just meeting Cherie, Bo loudly insists she will marry him and live on his ranch. He even kidnaps the poor girl at the bus station when she tries to get away from him.

They arrive at Grace's remote Rocky Mountain diner (an "official" bus stop) in a blizzard. Cherie begs all who will listen to free her from her captor. Carl (Bray), the chivalrous bus driver that considers himself captain of his ship, challenges Bo to a fistfight. They go at it in the storm and Carl whales the tar out of Bo, who eventually gives up when he's caught in an unbreakable wrestling hold.

Cherie first watches their fight from inside Grace's and then goes in the cold to beg the two men to stop. Her dread of Bo has suddenly turned to sympathy at the sight of him getting beaten. When Bo, as preface to saying goodbye the next morning, apologizes for scaring heck out of her, ordering her around and abducting her, Cherie melts like an ice cube in a hot frying pan and coos that "I would go anywhere with you now."

Shrinks would have a field day analyzing the behavior of these two. What sort of message did this send in 1956 to young women seeing the film with a date?

4.0 out of 5 stars Marilyn's best as the luminous Cherie November 14, 2001
Long out of print (and undeservedly so), "Bus Stop" returns to the video scene and just in time for the current DVD frenzy. Monroe is heartbreaking as kitchy chanteuse, Cherie, who's hijacked by a love-struck young buck played by Don Murray. When Cherie performs "That Old Black Magic", she's her own floor-show in more ways than one. Marilyn gives a nuanced romantic and comedic performance. Her sex appeal is, as always, unstoppable. But it's Cherie's heart (and Marilyn's) that seems stripped bare -- particulary in the key scene at the bus stop diner when the camera pulls in for an extreme closeup of Murray and Marilyn. Anyone who can sustain that kind of luminous vulnerability under such intense focus is truly a screen legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is wonderful! January 8, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
What a great movie! Don Murray is perfect in the role of Beau and Marilyn Monroe is, well, awesome. If you ever wonder why some people become legends, she shows in this film why she is one. When she is on the screen, you don't look at anyone else! She is touching, beautiful, sexy - she's got it all. The rest of the cast is excellent as well, but you'll remember the 2 leads forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Depot Dillema" October 7, 2008
It is too bad Don Murry did not get an acadamy award for this picture. He nails his character as a whiney, lovesick cowboy. The real treat in watching the picture is getting to see a very young Marylin Monroe doing splendidly as she emerges as a very fine dramatic actress. Time has shown how really great she was at her craft. There never has been nor never will be anything like her--mountains of imitators, some spending millions to advance their own careers have not come close. Some of her talent was natural and some of it learned by "the Method." Her timing is exquisite. The movie is a great record of a period marked by method acting and it displays examples of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bus Stop April 2, 2005
By senior
The story is corny, but that's what makes it so funny. Marilyn over plays the character as a lot of little things happen around her that aren't really part of the story, but would be typical in a similar situation; like for example when Marilyn is trying to change clothes in the bus full of sleeping passenger. She contends with the little boy who is set to watch by placing her hand on the top of his head and turning it to the side. At the time the bus driver almost runs off the road and turns the bus over trying to get a peek too. Marilyn is just too perfect at being Marilyn!
