Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Monroe's final project, "Something's Got to Give," has become one of the most talked about unfinished films in history. The story of the film and Marilyn's last days were seemingly lost... until now. Through interviews, never-before-seen footage and an edited reconstruction of "Something Got To Give," Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days provides a definitive and fascinating look at the last act in the life of the world's most famous and tragic superstar. (117 minutes, Color, 2001)

Although it was really amazing to see the reconstruction/restoration of "Somethings's Got To Give" and view all of the footage of Marilyn from her last (and unfinished) film, it was extremely disappointing to see the angle that this documentary took. Interviewing a senile housekeeper (Eunice Murrary) years after the fact and giving her testimonial credibility? Putting in the innuendo of the Kennedy's being responsible for Marilyn's death? Leaving out her re-engagement to Joe DiMaggio? Most of the people interviewed (with a few exceptions) are the self-serving sycophants who hung onto Marilyn and were honked off when she tried to cut them off the gravy train right before her death. Every frame of Marilyn's performance is magical; she looks absolutely luminous, and although the film itself would probably not have been a stunner if finished, Marilyn herself would have given a first-rate performance. So, if purchasing don't look for an accurate documentary; but enjoy the performance from Marilyn that could have been.

This film is mostly a movie filled with photographs that show different periods in her last days. There is very little actual moving film information. They do show the actual film footage, what there is of it, from her last movie. There are the almost nude scenes that were so well publicized when the film was being made.

The nice thing about the film is Marilyn herself, always glowing, smiling, beaming, seeming to enjoy her celebrity very much. The tragedy of her early death is treated with respect, but I felt after I watched the film, I would never watch it again, as it didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know.

For any Marilyn Fan this is a must have about the final film that she never finished. Its great to get the inside story from those that were there and their impressions of Marilyn and what the studio was doing to her and the film it self. you won't regret it! GET IT!
