Niagara

3

Miss Monroe smoulders again in this film-noir

From My Week With Marilyn to TV's Smash, Norma Jean Baker continues to exert a powerful fascination on filmmakers and audiences alike. 

This title, released at the base camp and zenith of her Hollywood ascent, explain why; Niagara’s scheming vixen embody the sizzle and sadness that underpinned her bombshell persona. 

 

Admittedly, she gets better service from her directors (Henry Hathaway, Joshua Logan) than she does from her co-stars (Joseph Cotton, Don Murray). 

 

Once that tush starts wiggling, though, you will barely give them a second glance.
