The Broadway based movie reduces romance to a physical attraction and of never saying I'm sorry for being a male predator.

A dramatic departure for Marilyn Monroe, who broadens her acting chops in the role of singer Cherrie.

Bus Stop is heavy with the corn syrup and plays today as a relic from a less-evolved epoch, but it works, largely because of Monroe.

Though Don Murray is the only actor to get an Oscar nod, the main reason to see Joshua Logan's serio comedy, based on Inge's play, is Marilyn Monroe, who shines as the country girl with big Hollywood aspirations.

Monroe has the courage to make Cherie a far less talented performer than Monroe was herself.

Antagony & Ecstasy
July 13, 2014
Boorish comedy mingling incompetently with underfed character drama.

I suspect that some viewers will either like the film because of Monroe's performance, or hate it because of Murray's.

The Taming of the Shrew appears oddly depressing when re-imagined as a mid-century hick minstrel show
