From Ballroom to the Subway: Marilyn’s Greatest Movie Moments

With yet another (fictional) biopic on the way, it’s a great time to reacquaint yourself with Marilyn’s movie magic, or introduce a friend. Writing for the Evening Standard, Elizabeth Gregory selects some of her favourite Monroe moments. As well as the obvious picks – the ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ number from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and the ‘subway scene’ from The Seven Year Itch – she suggests the fashion show scene from How to Marry a Millionaire; the ballroom scene from The Prince and the Showgirl; and Sugar’s heart-to-heart with ‘Josephine’ in Some Like It Hot.
