Let's Make It Legal

Gary Couzens has reviewed the Region 2 release of Let's Make It Legal, a middling comedy released as part of Fox's Marilyn Monroe Classic Collection Volume Two box set.

As Young as You Feel

Gary Couzens has reviewed the Region 2 release of As Young As You Feel, a likeable comedy starring Monty Woolley and featuring Marilyn Monroe in a small role. It's released as part of the second volume of the Monroe Classic Collection box set.

We're Not Married

Due to an administrative error, five couples find out that they are not legally married. Noel Megahey reviews this sharp little comedy, included in Volume 1 of the forthcoming Marilyn Monroe Classic Collection.

Love Nest

The second rare Monroe film to be included in Volume 1 of the Marilyn Monroe Classic Collection, Love Nest is an average little comedy about a couple trying to make a go of running a New York apartment block. Noel Megahey reviews.

Marilyn Monroe: The Classic Collection

Replacing the Diamond Collection these two collections released on 25th October 200 by Fox Home Entertainment bring together 14 movies featuring the late, great Marilyn Monroe. Our review coverage begins with this overview feature…

Marilyn Monroe Collection

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has written an overall view of Fox's Marilyn Monroe Collection. An eleven disc collection that contains ten films and a documentary, all sharing a common theme of Marilyn Monroe, the sexiest blonde actress of them all. The collection is released this week at a modest price, and is a must-buy for fans of all ages! Reviews written by Raphael Pour-Hashemi, Mark Boydell, Mike Sutton and Noel Megahey.

Niagara

Mike Sutton has reviewed the Region 2 release of Niagara. Another disc in Fox's Marilyn Monroe Collection, this entertaining thriller offers Monroe at her most fatale.

The Seven Year Itch

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the Region 2 release of The Seven Year Itch. One of the most famous Marilyn Monroe films is sadly one of the weakest, but if featured on a strong Fox disc as part of the boxset.

How To Marry A Millionaire

Mike Sutton has reviewed the Region 2 release of How To Marry A Millionaire, part of the Fox Marilyn Monroe Collection. A very mediocre comedy is enlivened by a fantastic anamorphic transfer.

Don't Bother to Knock

Mark Boydell has reviewed the release of Don't Bother to Knock, a minor Monroe which is given a decent bare-bones release. This DVD will be released as part of the 'Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection'.

Let's Make Love

Noel Megahey has reviewed the Region 2 release of Let's Make Love, featured in the forthcoming 'Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection'. Monroe's presence elevates a rather average musical. The DVD features a good quality restoration of the original Cinemascope presentation.

There's No Business Like Show Business

Noel Megahey has reviewed the Region 2 release of the colourful musical There's No Business Like Show Business as part of the Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection. Not the best film with Monroe in it, but certainly some of the best of Monroe in a film. The DVD release boasts a superbly restored Cinemascope presentation.

Monkey Business

Mike Sutton has reviewed the Region 2 release of Howard Hawks' disappointing comedy Monkey Business. Part of the Fox "Marilyn Monroe Collection" but the radiant Marilyn only features for about 20 minutes.

Bus Stop

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the Region 2 release of Bus Stop. The second review of Marilyn Monroe films taken from the forthcoming boxset release, Bus Stop is a weak and light-hearted comedy concerning a naive rodeo cowboy looking for a wife.

River of No Return

To kick off a series of reviews of the Marilyn Monroe Diamonds Boxset, Mark Boydell takes a look at the Region 2 release of River of No Return, a musical western which had probably endured over the years thanks to the casting of Mitchum opposite Monroe. The film has been substantially restored for this DVD release but is sadly given little more than a bare-bones release.

The Misfits

Mike Sutton has reviewed the Region 2 release of Marilyn Monroe's last filmThe Misfits. An underrated film with a fantastic final turn from Clark Gable gets an entirely average DVD from the underachieving MGM.

Some Like It Hot (Special Edition)

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the Region 2 release of Some Like It Hot (Special Edition). A classic film gets the re-release treatment from MGM who have bettered every aspect of last year's bare-bones release.
