Product Description

Forever Marilyn Blu Ray Box Set from DVDLand.

Gentlemen prefer blondes

Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) and her friend Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell) are a pair of showgirls, Dorothy the sassy one looking for true love, Lorelei the blonde hoping to marry a millionaire, with her sights set on Gus Esmond, a wealthy nerd stuck under his father's thumb. When Lorelei and Dorothy take a transatlantic cruise to Paris, an undercover detective follows to find out if Lorelei is really a gold-digging schemer. Unfortunately, the irrepressible Lorelei is a born flirt and soon finds herself in a compromising position with Sir Francis Beekman (Charles Coburn), owner of a diamond mine. The girls have to use all their wits to get out of trouble and still find love and marriage. Thanks to the talents of the luminous stars and director Howard Hawks, plus stunning technicolor cinematography, GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES emerges as one of the most charming, entertaining musicals of the 1950s. Marilyn Monroe, never more luminous, sings her legendary musical number "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (which later inspired Madonna's "Material Girl" video). GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES is based on the hit Broadway musical which was adapted from the book by Anita Loos.

How to marry a millionaire

In one of the finest comedic performances of her career Marilyn plays a delicious, yet deciderly vission-impaired, young model, who rent a Manhattan penthouse in the hope of finding rich husbands.

River of no return

The title river unites a farmer recently released from prison, his young son, and an ambitious saloon singer. In order to survive, each must be purged of anger, and each must learn to understand and care for the others.

Theres no business like show business

Starting back in the days of Vaudeville, were husband and wife team of Molly (Ethel Merman) and Terry Donahue (Dan Dailey). The couple has three children, who eventually grow up and are added to the act. After The Five Donahues become headliners performing at the Hippodrome, the act breaks up when the adult children decide to strike out on their own. Eldest son, Steve (Johnnie Ray) decides to enter the priesthood, his siblings Tim (Donald O'Connor) and Katy (Mitzi Gaynor) remain in the family business. While Tim and Katy's seem to be on the fast track to stardom of their own, Tim hits a bump in the road when he meets and falls in love with Vicky Parker (Marilyn Monroe), a beautiful entertainer whose career is being built up by an enamored producer.

The Seven Year Itch

"Oh do you feel the breeze from the subway. Isn't it delicious?" As her skirt was lifted from the wind of a subway grate, Marilyn Monroe made movie history in The Seven Year Itch.

Showing sparkling wit, an effervescent personality and beguiling beauty, Monroe became the world's ultimate fantasy figure in legendary director Billy Wilder's delightful sex comedy.

After he packs his wife and son off for a cool summer vacation in Maine, middle aged book publisher Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) must face the dog days of Manhattan alone. That is until The Girl (Monroe) moves into an upstairs apartment and into Sherman's wild imagination.

Some Like it Hot

When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest and homeliest - members of an all-girl jazz band. Their cover is perfect... until a lovelorn singer (Marilyn Monroe) falls for Josephine, and ancient playboy (Joe E. Brown) falls for Daphne, and a mob boss (George Raft), who refuses to fall for their hoax, wants them put on ice for good.

The Misfits

She meets two friends, Guido (Eli Wallach) and Gay (Clark Gable), who take her for a few days in Cuidos house in the country, to relax and forget the difficulties of the past few weeks. Everything goes nice at first, but soon the two men fall in love with Roslyn, and start showing some bad aspects of their characters.
