The couple befriend Polly (Jean Peters) and Ray Cutler (Casey Adams), who are honeymooning in the area. Polly begins to suspect that something is amiss between Rose and George, and her suspicions grow when she sees Rose in the arms of another man. While Ray initially thinks Polly is overreacting, things between George and Rose soon take a shockingly dark turn.

Audience Reviews for Niagara

  • Apr 08, 2016
    Some dirt and double dealings at one of Nature's most celebrated outdoor showers. Done in that hyper-pristine Hollywood Technicolor that was the style, Joe Cotton and Marilyn Monroe ruminate on the dark interpersonal of interpersonal relationships. What's notable is watching Marilyn: it is obvious that she is stretching herself, akin to watching your own child take their first steps.

    The look and atmosphere in this film is so vivid that even viewed on TV it makes you feel as if you have been to Niagara Falls sometime in the early 1950s. The plot takes a deceptively leisurely pace but it builds to a gripping climax. It is worth the viewer's time & effort to stick with it to the end. Marilyn Monroe is radiantly treacherous & her performance is subtle and bears close watching beyond her obvious attractiveness. She should get a lot more credit for this picture than I've seen others give her. Joseph Cotten balances between being menacing & getting our pity & sympathy. Not all the performances are terrific but this movie is a gem that rewards the effort to stick with it to the end. 4 1/2 Stars 4 -8-13

    Denis O'Dea co-stars as Inspector Sharkey who follows up on a missing persons report filed by the Cutlers (Casey Adams & Jean Peters), neighboring "honeymooners" at the Rainbow Motel at Niagara Falls on behalf of poor bombshell Mrs. Rose Loomis (Marilyn Monroe) is the hot tamale wife of an aging George Loomis played masterfully by Joseph Cotton. Mr. Loomis is the classic jealous husband. The beauty of Jean Peters is somewhat downplayed due to her curvacious co-star, Marilyn; however, Peters is at least at striking! Her hubby, Ray Cutler (Casey Adams) has won a contest on creative uses for shredded wheat and their trip to Niagara Falls for a belated honeymoon has been paid for by the generous Shredded Wheat tycoon Mr. Kettering (Don WIlson) & his delightful wife (Lurene Tuttle). I have never been to Niagara Falls but after watching this a second then a third time (currently showing on TV this afternoon on a Marilyn Monroe binge--I almost feel like I have been to the falls. Colorful lights are turned on at 8:30 pm nightly which add to their spectacular beauty. Tours of the Falls are by boat named "Maid of the Mist," A key feature of the area "back in the day" is the playing of song requests on a magnificent bell tower! Lots of appeal in this dated charmer...

    A good thriller with Monroe, taking place around Niagara falls. Good story, I liked it.
