When people talk about Marilyn Monroe in "Something's Got To Give" the blondie seems more sexy than "Seven Year Itch". This film is the only case which we can judge Marilyn as a sex simbol and not as a movie star.
The production of what would have been Marilyn Monroe's final film for Fox Studios was plagued with difficulties, and despite popular opinion, most of them were not the fault of the movie's star. Fox was facing major financial problems due to another film, Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor, which was a long way over it's budget. Good documentary
Definitely 37 minutes aren't enough to appreciate Something's Got to Give because it is an unfinished film, but what I saw, made me find out this movie was destined to fail because of the pressure, the overracted performances by everybody and the awful script it had. Marilyn Monroe's great at the pool and this is the only rescuable thing of this movie.
It was good, but I wanted more juicy details.
what a loss...she still shines through these last scenes...spectacular!
A great documentary being that it's the only one I've seen so far. But I enjoyed it because I always want to know more about celebrities from the past. Her story is pretty sad once you get to know who she really was off camera. Tragedy aside, this was a nice look at her last would be film.
A good documentary about what could have been. I was slightly disappointed that it didn't touch on her death as much but this is mostly about the movie that was never finished more than the life and death of Marylin Monroe.
It is such a shame watching this because you could see so much potential for the movie and Marylin Monroe who at 36 you would have thought her prime is over (or at least on the beauty side) but she was absolutely stunning. I have not seen a 36 year old woman looking that beautiful before.
What I hate is that people judge her and assume she is all about selling her body and being a sex symbol. I really recommend reading a book by Donald H Wolfe called "The Assassination of Marylin Monroe". After reading it myself, all my views about her as a woman, human being and an actress have changed. She was an icon and deservingly so.
The last cut of the movie on this documentary is very touching and sad at the same time. Something's Gotta Give will always be what could have been but here you get an idea of what it was going to be like.
Un bon documentaire, mais selon-moi, le meilleur demeure la restauration de son film innachevÃ© : Something's got to Give" J'ai ete impressionnee de la voir jouer des scenes magnifiques pour ensuite connaitre une fin si tragique...
I haven't seen any other monroe Docs, so I enjoyed this one, plus the restored and edited 40 minutes of her final unfinished film were great to watch.
An informative if bland documentary on Monroe's final film project and last few months. The amount of talking heads is exceptional, but what really makes this stand out is the 37 or so reconstructed minutes from Something's Got to Give. It doesn't look like the film would have been an outstanding addition to Marilyn's filmography, but the legend surrounding it makes for interesting viewing.
