MILLIONAIRE is one of Monroe's most delightful offerings. She plays the visually-challenged Pola, who, along with Chotzi (Lauren Bacall - KEY LARGO, THE BIG SLEEP) and 'Loco' (Betty Grable - MOTHER WORE TIGHTS) rents a Manhattan penthouse in the hopes of snagging rich husbands.
Of course, Fate often hands you things totally unexpected, and soon the girls realise that money can't be a substitute for happiness. There are plenty of pin-sharp observations about the opposite sex, a good 50-odd years before "Sex and the City" decided to make a whole TV show about women in the Big Apple.
Marilyn, Lauren and Betty make a colorful trio, and the CinemaSope picture is indeed a treat to the eyes.
The DVD includes restoration comparisons and trailers. Available separately or as part of the Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection.
like it must have been in a premium movie theater in 1955 with a magnetic print. Don't even think about
it, STOP NOW AND ORDER IT! You will love this. Even your strange teenagers will appreciate the production
values. This was the first CinemaScope film in the can in 1953, but Fox wanted "The Robe" released first as
a prestige picture. This poor woman had such talent and beauty. But wait! That's not all. If you order your
copy RIGHT NOW, you will have this as an heirloom to leave to your rotten kids in fifty years. There are only
a few copies available. One of them is for you. Just do it!
The girls fortunes appear to turn when Bacall meets elderly Texas cattle baron J.D. Hanley played by the debonair William Powell. Grable gets lured to Maine by wealthy but married Fred Clark but winds up falling for and marrying penniless forest ranger Rory Calhoun. The visually challenged but super sexy Monroe winds up on the wrong plane when going to meet her prospective beau in Atlantic City. She winds up enamored with and marrying tax cheat and previous owner of their apartment David Wayne, who is equally blind.
Throughout the film Bacall is pursued by a Tom Brookman played by Cameron Mitchell. She dismisses him as being a poor gas station attendant. Bacall and Powell are all set to be married but at the last moment she can't go through with it. Mitchell, who Bacall really cares for, stands in for Powell and marries her. They are all shocked when they learn that Mitchell is actually worth 200 million.
The gals have their plans dashed but wind up marrying for the right reason...........LOVE.
