Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Monroe - Hometown Story
Released in May 1951, Hometown Story features a stunning young Marilyn Monroe on the brink of stardom. It is a rare glimpse of Monroe before her breakthrough roles in Niagara and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which catapulted her to fame...and into history! See Monroe as her star just begins to twinkle...this Special Edition is a must for fans, collectors, and film buffs alike!

Jane Russell - The Outlaw
The publicity campaign surrounding The Outlaw's release was a masterpiece. Armed with stills of 19-year-old Jane Russell revealing a remarkable decolletage (while stooping to pick up a pair of milk pails!), Producer and Director Howard Hughes spent tens of thousands of dollars purposely to agitate the censors and arouse public indignation. He released the film independently in San Francisco in 1943 after United Artists refused to distribute it; it was quickly closed down by civic groups. By 1946, when Hughes finally re-released the film, audiences flocked to theaters.

AVA GARDNER - Whistle Stop
Although Ava Gardner had appeared in several movies, this was the film that gave her the opportunity to play in The Killers and shoot to stardom. As Mary, she returns to the small town of Whistle Stop after a two-year absence to find her old boyfriend, Raft, still up to his old ways. He is still a lazy lout who prefers to spend his time making love, playing cards and drinking. Mary attempts to divert him, but just as he decides to turn honest, and things seem set for him and Mary, he is framed for a murder.

For $5.49 you get the following three movies:

1. MARILYN MONROE in HOMETOWN STORY: released in 1951. This is Marilyn before Niagra and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Marilyn plays a very small role as a secretary to a newspaper editor. Her performance is too small to be noteable. She looks gorgeous and her speaking tone is more business like. It is not one of her "slap and tickle" roles. The film is good and very interesting by it's own rights. The actual visual picture quality for HOME TOWN STORY is the best of the 3 picture son the disc, as is the audio quality.

Starring in the film are Jeffrey Lynn, Donald Crisp, Marjorie Reynolds, Alan Hale Jr. (of Gilligan's Island), directed by Arthur Pierson. The story is about a Senator who is returning home to run a newspaper as editor after being defeated for re-election and how he plans to go on a crusade to change the world using the newspaper to do this to get all the things done from his small hometown paper that he was unable to accomplish on Capitol Hill. It's a good story, but if you watch it just for glimpses of Mariyln Monroe you will be disappointed. The picture itself has it's own redeeming qualities. It's great that it is now billed as a Marilyn picture as more people will see it who otherwise would not have come across it.

This film is a good addition (not a must-have) for the serious Marilyn Monroe Collector, but for someone just getting introduced to her films or a casual viewer of her films; there is not enough of her or to her performance to buy this film because of *her*. However, the film is very entertaining (by 1940 standards) to buy the dvd pack with/out Marilyn especially with the other two movies bundled.

I collect movies and have an interest in classic films. The Marilyn Monroe film Hometown was not the best film of that era nor did it feature her for longer than 20 minutes. It is good to see her fresh before iconic status. I actually bought this DVD because I wanted to se Howard Hughes' film Outlaw. That in itself was worth it.

The best movie out of the three is THE OUTLAW. It definetly lives up to it's legendary status! The other movies are so-so.
