Everyone is complaining about the subtitles -- just turn them off with the "subtitles" button on your remote! Easy as pie. This collection is an excellent value with very good quality pictures and sound -- although, that said, one disk (Don't Bother to Knock) stalls on my player. Excellent value regardless.

After serious consideration and reading all 31 reviews up to this entry, I decided to jump in and purchase this Korean set. First the price at approx $25 was just right and I ordered from a vendor who is local to where I live in Southern Calif. The vendors rating was around 90% and I was hesitant but figured that being only a short distance away I could possible avoid the broken spindle and scratched dvds.
The product came fast and in new pristine condition, no broken spindles or scratches due to being loose in the case. The dvds did have very slight markings, not affecting play, but due to the way the dvds sit on the spindle and pick up the back side of the double flip dvd holders. Not a problem.
The case does have a strong petroleum odor but I am used to that as I order alot of Box sets from Millcreek ent. Not a problem.
Now for the heart of the problem; the subtitles! Well I could not remove the Korean subtitles with the built in menu in the dvd, doesn't work! But wait, If your dvd remote has a subtitle button that will work. I tried it on all the 10 movies, including the last dvd which is an HBO movie of 2 hours+ with actors playing a bio on Marilyn not a documentary.
I checked all the movies to make sure they loaded and that the chapters worked properly, they all do but all have only 8 chapters and those that have a preview as a special feature of the movie will move into it on the 9th chapter click.
I have only seen 2 of the dvds completely, "Niagara" and "The 7 year itch" both are excellent copies. All the others in color are excellent with the older black & whites are very good.
I did notice that on Niagra as the camera pans left and right for an extended period you get a slight hesitation, but not enough to keep one from enjoying the movie.

Love Marilyn and was happy to get this movie collection - but not happy to learn - unfortunately after I had opened the package - that everything is subtitled in Korean. Pretty sure I would not have bought it had that been disclosed in the description. Seems like a fairly material thing to omit, but because they are DVDs there is a problem with returning them. Buyer beware. Shame on Amazon for an inaccurate description!

People need to stop getting scared over korean subtitles. I was afraid that the subtitles would be distracting, and I would be unable to get rid of them, but seriously-all it took was one click of a button and the rest of the film was easy to watch. It literally took one second out of my time, and that was during the opening credits.

So don't listen to the other reviews, and don't panic. All these DVD's are fine.

DO NOT BUY this Marilyn Monroe 10 disc Collection from 101 DISTRIBUTION unless you are crazy about huge, distracting Korean Subtitles. They have made it impossible to disable the subtitle feature, and, the large white text takes up a lot of the screen. If you thought the price was too good to be true, you'd be right. Too bad, because the quality of reproduction is really done well. Fix this problem, and you have a winner here.

I'm a value buyer, so if a movie collection contains a few misfires as well as a few classics, that isn't enough for me to avoid it if the good movies are good enough. And mostly, in this collection they are, and it represents most-but-not-all of Marilyn Monroe's work for Fox during the 1950s.

In chronological order, and kicking off, is "Monkey Business," a screwball comedy directed by Howard Hawks starring Ginger Rogers and Cary Grant as a middle-aged couple who encounter a youth serum; Marilyn is the spacey secretary in a small role. Some will like the next film on deck, but to me "Don't Bother to Knock" is a trifle, also "Niagara" with Joseph Cotten, and Marilyn in her last non-superstar role. Hawks as director is back for the smash hit "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," in which Marilyn and Jane Russell are just wonderful as showgirls who remain best friends despite the ups and downs of boyfriends. That movie's most memorable sequence is probably the one Madonna stole (Here it's "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," not 'Material World.') "How to Marry a Millionaire" was Fox's first CinemaScope (widescreen) comedy, and with Marilyn, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall as stars, how could we go wrong? But 1954's "There's No Business Like Show Business" doesn't quite work: there are those who find this pastiche of Irving Berlin tunes wound around the story of a Vaudevile family trite and tasteless, and others who simply can't warm up to it. "(We're Having a) Heat Wave" is probably the best known musical number in this flick, and certainly the best featuring Marilyn.

"River of No Return" was Fox's attempt to broaden Marilyn's scope, and this adventure story set in the Canadian wilderness was the way to do it.
