Marilyn Monroe
The Gold Collection Part II (Fox)

By: Randy Harward

Try as I may, I can't get into Marilyn Monroe. Sure, she's good lookin'. Sure she boned Joe DiMaggio (who wouldn't?). But it's the rumors she never bathed that mess with my head. You think about takin' a peek up her skirt when it's gettin' blown up by the AC, but then you imagine a curtain of funk dropping down and suffocating your ass. Or takin' a nap between the twin peaks? Beeeeeeeee-OOOOOOOOOOOOH. No way. Fantasy stops there. Funny thing, though, the movies in the Marilyn Monroe collection (these would be Niagra, Monkey Business, Don't Bother To Knock, River Of No Return and Let's Make Love) are kinda cool (faves being the suspenseful ones, River-- and Don't Bother--). The special features include a restoration comparison (great idea), trailers, still galleries and subtitles. Sadly, Monkey--and Don't Bother-- are only presented in full screen mode, which stinks. Ratings, according to first mention in this review: B, B+, A-, A-, B.
