Marilyn Monroe
If Marilyn Monroe were alive she would have been 84-years-old today. An excuse to create a special post today instead of spitting out more title stills.

Most people who only watch recent movies know who Marilyn Monroe was, but haven’t seen any of her movies. I hope the Marilyn Monroe stills displayed below will inspire you to watch some of these movies.

Not all of them are masterpieces and some of here roles were just mere cameo’s, but there are almost always multiple reasons to watch a Marilyn Monroe movie:

Watch Some like it hot and you’ll get Marilyn Monroe + Billy Wilder + Tony Curtis + Jack Lemmon.

Watch Monkey business and you’ll get Marilyn Monroe + Howard Hawks + Cary Grant + Ginger Rogers.

Watch one of her other movies and you’ll get Marilyn Monroe + Bette Davis, Thelma Ritter, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan, Richard Widmark, Charles Laughton, Charles Coburn, Joseph Cotten, Jane Russell, Lauren Bacall, William Powell, Robert Mitchum, Laurence Olivier, Yves Montand, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Dean Martin.

Not bad, eh?

Still not convinced? Scroll down and you know you need more Marilyn in your life. Enjoy!
