This was the second Marilyn film I ever saw. I can't remember where or how, but it was a good couple of years after 'The Seven Year Itch'. This was in the day before I managed to con my Dad into getting a VCR.

No spoilers here!

1952 / (Photos Jock CARROLL) Marilyn en tailleur noir lors du tournage du film "Niagara". / Un critique de l'époque l'affirmait : "Ce film authentifie deux chefs-d'œuvre de la nature : le Niagara et Marilyn."

This may have been billed as a Marilyn film, but I think of this more as a Donald O'Connor film. Especially as more about his personal life comes out, his performance here take on a poignancy that no one else in the cast comes close to.
