Marilyn Monroe is an American icon, and although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in August 1962.

This summer, we celebrate her legacy through watching and discussing some her finest films.

  • Jun 7: Don't Bother to Knock (1952, Dir. Roy Baker)
    A man with anger issues (Richard Widmark) finds himself drawn to a disturbed babysitter (Monroe) in one of her earliest dramatic roles.
  • Jun 14: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953, Dir. Howard Hawks)
    Two singers, best friends Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw (Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell) travel to Paris and are pursued by a private detective hired by Lorelei's fiancé's disapproving father to keep an eye on her.
  • Jun 21: Some Like It Hot (1959, Dir. Billy Wilder)
    Two Struggling musicians (Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis) witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and are now on the run from the Mob. Jerry and Joe cross-dress into an all female band. In addition to hiding, each has his own problems; One falls for another band member but can't tell her his gender, and the other has a rich suitor who will not take "No," for an answer.
