Marilyn Monroe began to change her role (by sinatra-11)
I saw this movie in Aug 4,2005. And I saw it again yesterday. Yes. this is one of the most hilarious movies I've ever seen. Marilyn's acting role, as Amanda Dell, was great. Here in this movie, Marilyn Monroe was not the Marilyn Monroe we know.In Niagara 1953 and The seven year itch 1955 , both of these movies, she portrays as sexy-starlet. But in this movie, she is a very pure and fragile theater-actress Amanda Dell. Well, we know her platinum blonde hair attracts a lot of men, but her character,in this movie, is very friendly to girls. May be many girls lost their feeling of <more>
inferiority after watching this movie.And I saw Marilyn Monroe, Yves Montand, Tony Randall, Frankie Vaughan and Wilfrid Hyde-White plus Milton Berle 40 million Americans call him as a Uncle Milky? Bing Crosby i love his song 'White Christmas' and Gene Kelly. These luxurious casting combination is very fantastic.I never expected Crosby and Kelly to appear. I saw a preview version of Let's Make Love, in there, no cameo appearances of in the preview. But Kelly and Crosby's cameo appearing made my eyes happy.I think Marilyn's acting career is more valuable in her 30's than 20's.Because in her 20's, she portrayed us her physical attraction. Sometimes she enticed a man Niagara , Sometimes vivacious How to marry a millionaire , and sometimes valiant River of No Return .But in her 30's her character showed fragile, pure and vulnerable. I found out these phenomenon in this movie,Let's Make Love. So I can figure it out her acting was changed.
I think this is one great movie. Ms. Monroe is at the top of her game in this type of film. She oozes sex, womanliness, with a bit of naivety and intelligence thrown into the mixture. Mr. Montand, as usual, understates his role and does so beautifully. He always reminds me of a person who has constipation, but that is part of his acting charm. The plot is simple, the songs fantastic and the cast very nice. The highlight of the movie for myself is Ms. Monroe and Mr. Vaughn singing "Let's Make Love." Boy after that scene I always feel like seducing the man I love. In this scene <more>
Ms. Monroe comes across as a powerful woman who knows that she holds all of the cards necessary to vamp and bed the nervous Mr. Vaughn who sings his part beautifully. Isn't it a riot how Mr. Montand daydreams he is singing the song with her and lies across the chair in an embrace? This is one of a very few movies that I could see many times without wanting to fast forward through this or that scene. I would have like to hear Mr. Montand sing the title song in its entirety. A very sexy, comical bit of entertainment!Well, after five years, I still enjoy the movie. In fact I now own the DVD so I can hear the beautiful rendention of the title song any time I wish.
Not only an iconic romantic meeting rental (by leplatypus)
This movie is the reunion of the best of Hollywood Marilyn, Gene Kelly with the best of France Montand . Maybe today we have french cast doing American movies but not at this level and not as much talented poor Cotillard for example . At once, you feel that it was a different society: today it's great to be cool, show-off, immodest while then all was about decency and restraint. But, the main feeling I keep with this movie is how good the story is: how can a wealthy man can love a simple girl is told less like a love story than a story about classes: With that, the movie is really <more>
intelligent because it tells a simple true: money can buy anything so corrupts everything. Like we said today, money is the only bench-marking. And having Montand as the billionaire is inspired because we have an actor with a real social morality! So this rich guy tries to become a simple guy to get the girl, even if his transformation is helped by his money! So it's a soft attack against relationship in a capitalist society and it's a bit courageous! I don't know any other comedy like that except maybe Eddy Murphy's Prince of New York or the next mentioned Disney animation: indeed, the ending is however disappointing the same capitulation as in Lady and the tramp !
good moment, with a wonderful pantyhose dance scene (by collantsansculotte)
Viewnig the movies give good time.But, for me, there is a wonderful scene, at the beginning, when Monroe dances.She wear only pantyhose and a blue sweater and she is very, very sexy. She repeat a dance show.When Montand look at here at this scene, he fall in love to Monroe and the movie really begin.For me, this is one of the movies where Monroe is the more sexy.Elsewhere scenario is not a very good scenario. But seeing Monroe in a movies is always a good time.
Marilyn The Magnficent (by williwaw)
Marilyn Monroe was at the top of the Hollywood star ladder as the Star of Stars when assigned this movie by her home studio 20th. Marilyn Monroe had just had the smash hit of her career with Some Like It Hot A United Artists film and 20th wanted to cash in on the MM popularity. Marilyn Monroe had been announced for another UA film John Huston's masterpiece The Misfits co starring Clark Gable and 20th insisted on a Monroe film before MM was allowed to do another film outside 20th. between 1956 to 1960 while having the greatest star in Hollywood under contract 20th Century Fox did not <more>
cast MM in a movie however the very shrewd MM had a play or pay contract and when the studio announced her for Wild River and The Blue Angel but those deals did not materialize MM demanded and got her salary for those films! Much has been written about this film and when it was released I was disappointed, having seen it recently on the Fox Movie Channel, I now find Lets Make Love charming and Ms Monroe enchanting. George Cukor among the "Approved Directors" on MM's short list others were Wilder, Huston, Hitchcock, Wyler, et al was said to be a director aware of the nuances of a female star's personas Hepburn, Garbo, Crawford, Leigh, Holiday, Loren all raved over Cukor.Marilyn Monroe looks stupendous in this movie,and is given fine support by a cast of professional's such as Wilfrid Hyde White, Tony Randall and cameos by Milton Berle and Bing Crosby. Yves Montand, who had a legendary fling during the filming of the movie with MM, is fine as The Billionaire.
Problematic, but don't hang it on Marilyn. (by schell-7)
Marilyn lights up every scene in which she's not engulfed by the large frame of Montand. She's no less captivating in "Let's Make Love" then she is in "Gentlemen Marry Blondes" when she descends an artificial staircase buttressed by two other leggy actresses who can't for a moment take our gaze away from Marilyn.Nevertheless, the film feels awkward and slow, with a jolting, herky-jerky movement from from one scene to the next. Part of the unease is due to the feminist responses--some, like Gloria Steinem's, in book-length form--that attempt to portray <more>
Marilyn as a victim, created and manipulated by the machinery and machinations of a patriarchal Hollywood system. No matter than the autonomous energy and power that Marilyn radiates in every scene give the lie to the notion that she was used and abused as a puppet responding to the strings of her male masters. There was only one Marilyn--whether seen as the essence of glamour and sexiness--or the big screen's brightest female comedienne.It's Marilyn who has power over us, demanding and commanding our gaze, more than any of her "handlers" had control of her. But her talent is based on far more than looks and choreography. The sound of her voice is at one moment "breathy" and the next especially during her singing full of ringing overtones, like the 1000 bells that Frank Capra attributed to the speaking voice of Jean Arthur. So enough of the feminist criticisms of this film for enacting the "entrapment" of Marilyn that she was alleged to experience off-screen. Her free spirit resists containment, despite the many attempts of academic minds to wrap their book covers around it.The failures of the film are not the fault of Montand, who can't help it if his large physical size accompanied by undeniable talent, charm and grace, are simply not "right" for the part he's been asked to play. Of the male co-stars originally proposed for the role--Gregory Peck, Gary Cooper, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Rock Hudson--Stewart is the one for whom the only objection might be his age. An extraordinary if underrated actor--with unlimited range--by 1960 Stewart was no longer George Bailey from "It's a Wonderful Life" or even Scottie from "Vertigo" . But the major problem with the film is it's sheer scale. The producers seemed so enamored of the period's technology--super-Cinemascope plus high-fidelity, multi-track film--that neglected more important elements like story, character development and a film score.On my television screen, the blown-up images threaten to crop out Tony Randall's image in every scene. Like the story, Hollywood's cutting-edge technology creates images that are to simply overblown, or inflated, to create any "suspension of disbelief" experienced by the viewer. Even the length of the project--2 hours--is twice, maybe 4 times, the time needed to tell and "sell" this one-idea story, which could have easily been done in a 30-minute sit-com.Nevertheless, all of the reported off-screen problems-- with writers, directors, stars, labor strikes, make-up artists and costume designers--would have meant nothing to anybody--if the picture and been an instant commercial success. Advice: don't read anything more about this movie. Instead, just watch the film. Or just watch Marilyn. Addendum: Today the words "make love" have acquired a much more specific meaning--practically a euphemism for "the act itself"--than was the case in 1960. Up until 1968 "making love" referred to nothing more than cuddling and kissing. So lighten up and enjoy the vital, unique talent of the screen's inimitable siren, Marilyn.
