BUS STOP: In a brilliant performance that ultimately proved she was more than a pretty face, Marilyn delivers an energetic and warm portrayal of an innocent young singer working her way across the country towards a hopeful future in Hollywood

GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES: In one of her most popular films Marilyn sizzles as a glamorous blonde bombshell determined to marry her millionaire fianc so that she can discover for herself if Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE: In one of the finest comedic performances of her career Marilyn plays a delicious, yet decidedly vision impaired, young model, who, along with her two equally scheming friends, rents out a Manhattan penthouse in hopes of hooking rich husbands.

LET'S MAKE IT LEGAL: Marilyn Monroe makes a cameo appearance in a charming spoof on marriage! A still gorgeous grandmother (Claudette Colbert) divorces her husband Hugh (Macdonald Carey) because hes a compulsive gambler. Their daughter (Barbara Bates0 does all she can to get them back together, but problems arise when Victor (Zachary Scott), Mums high school sweetheart-turned-millionaire, suddenly arrives in town. Even though a breathtaking beauty (Marilyn Monroe) is hot on his trail, Vic only has eyes for Grandma driving ex-husband Hugh to the brink of comic insanity as he wages a wild and unforgettable battle to win his wife back.

MONKEY BUSINESS: In this outrageous screwball comedy, a voluptuous secretary and her handsome boss cant stop themselves from engaging in a little monkey business after a chimpanzee accidentally concocts, then dumps, an anti-aging formula into the office water cooler.

SEVEN YEAR ITCH: While Hollywood censors kept a careful eye on the notoriously racy production, Marilyn was pure perfection as a sexy, yet innocent, starlet living upstairs from a married man who had just sent his wife and son away for the summer.

SOME LIKE IT HOT: Nominated for 6 Academy Awards. 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 (Monroe) falls for Josephine, an 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.

THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS: Marilyn sings, dances and dazzles in this delightful musical saga of a show biz family looking back on their trials and triumphs, both in vaudeville and in life.
