Story about a young married couple who become landlords to an apartment building full of interesting tennants - including Marilyn Monroe (as Roberta). Marilyn is beautiful, funny, and charming as the "sex symbol" of the house. This is a cute romantic comedy - a sweet, simple movie about love, money, and trust. Would you trust your husband living next door to sexy Marilyn Monroe??

as a younger viewer (not born until the 1970's) I am just discovering Monroes films. I like "7 year itch", "Niagra" and "dont bother to knock", but this film doesn't have enough Monroe. If they didnt put her on the cover and pretend it was a Monroe film Im sure alot less people would have purhchased it. She isnt even well casted for the role. She doesn't look like she would have been a WAC.

The film is okay, but its nothing worth owning. The plot is really stupid and the jokes aren't that great. All the actors did a great job, but there is only so much you can do with a silly premise like this...

Marilyn Monroe in her 12th screen role appearance. Her popularity was definitely on the rise and in 1951, was her 3rd movie behind "Hometown Story" and "As Young as You Feel". Marilyn plays a supporting role as most of her movies have been since "Ladies of the Chorus". She plays an ex Army WAC and friend of the returning husband. She finds herself renting one of the apartments in the building her friend's wife had bought. The wife finds out and things get a little dicey, but hey, it's all in good fun. It's a cute movie and I can see why Marilyn's star was on the way up.

"Love Nest" is a 1951 low-budget black-and-white comedy film that starred June Haver, William Lundigan, Frank Fay, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Paar, and Leatrice Joy. The movie was directed by Joseph Newman and released by 20th Century-Fox.

Does this movie have a good plot? Well, it has a minor one that gets somewhat dull after 10 or 15 minutes.

Does it have good quality? Yes, this B&W movie has an A- quality.

Does it have good stars? June Haver, who garners top billing and dominates the film, is a good looking lady who was a star of musicals in the 1940s. William Lundigan, who never really became anything big co-stars. Let's not forget Marilyn Monroe and Jack Paar who would soon become Hollywood's biggest sex goddess and TV star, respectively. Silent stars Frank Fay and Leatrice Joy also co-star.

****For the record, I must tell other buyers of this product that I strictly bought this movie because of Marilyn Monroe. I got into June Haver a good bit afterwards. And I must also say that Miss Monroe doesn't show much in this movie, she's maybe on screen for 7 or 8 minutes. And in the movie's opening credits she doesn't receive over-the-title billing, she get "With..." billing directly after the title. So if you like to see old fashioned romantic comedy-dramas this movie MIGHT be worth the buy? MIGHT!

This was just a simple romantic tale, no singing and dancing, which is usual with June Haver. But it was relaxing to watch how the two young people work to save their home that seems to be falling down around them. Sometimes you just need to sit back and enjoy! It is an OLDIE but a GOODIE!

In this movie a G.I. comes home to find his wife has bought an apartment building with his pay. Hilarity ensues as he tries to deal with tenants, plumbing, and writer's block. A good movie, it also includes Marilyn Monroe in an early role as a WAC sergeant who served overseas with the G.I. This movie doesn't do her skills justice, but it is a smaller role.

In 1951 and 1952, between ALL ABOUT EVE and NIAGARA, Marilyn Monroe was in her build-up phase. The emerging Blonde Bombshell appeared in fourteen feature movies about evenly divided between comedy and drama, all black-and-white, and most for her home studio of Twentieth Century-Fox, a deft and prolific source of dialog comedies. LOVE NEST (1951) is an engaging ensemble comedy that will remind many viewers of a citified MONEY PIT, as a returning World War II vet (William Lundigan) and his wife (June Haver) contend with a ramshackle Gramercy Place apartment house constantly in need of attention and expensive repair. The husband tries fitfully to pursue a career as a freelance magazine writer, while the wife tries to decorate and refurbish their aging apartment. Their tenants are also a provocation, such as a dapper, aging romantic (Frank Fay) who has drawn a disconcerting and unexplained interest from the FBI. A slightly zany attorney friend (Jack Paar, before his meteoric radio and TV career at NBC later in the decade) is instantly attracted to "Bobbie" Stevens (Monroe), a strikingly beautiful ex-WAC who has returned to her prewar profession of modeling, and whose very presence triggers instant comic jealousy from Haver. MM, lovely and photogenic as ever, plays an intelligent, witty and sophisticated woman somewhat at odds with the "dumb blonde" stereotype that dogged much of her earlier career. From the studio that gave us EVE, A LETTER TO THREE WIVES and MONKEY BUSINESS, LOVE NEST is not tip-top comedy but a literate I.A.L. Diamond script and accomplished playing add zest. The surprise ending is particularly satisfying.Read more ›
