Week 33 - A George Cukor Picture
I agree with Marilyn - this wasn't a very good script. Hell, her husband even rewrote it to try and put more emphasis on her and still didn't do anyone justice. It's definitely not one of Cukor's more shining moments. However, I will say Marilyn really does shine in this despite everything. Of course she can sing really well, but she also has a distinct acting that you don't see in any of her other films. It always makes me sad whenever I see something of hers post 1957 because it really shows how much she was growing as an actress despite all of the demons she was fighting. Sigh.
Anyway, not particularly memorable film, but I had to make a quick decision to watch a Cukor film and the DVD I reserved at the library hadn't come in time so I just decided on this!
