The 1953 thriller, Niagara, will be screened as part of a ‘Femmes Fatales’ series at Thomaston Public Library in Waldo County, Maine, on Friday, November 25, at 6.30 pm, reports Dagney Ernest for the Herald Gazette.
‘In this fine noirish thriller, Marilyn Monroe plays a shameless hussy who wears skin-tight sweaters and flirts with anybody in long pants. Joseph Cotton plays her long-suffering husband who, nonetheless, remains obsessed with her. On a vacation trip to Niagara Falls, everything unravels — the wife and her lover plot to kill her husband by flinging him over the falls, but their plan goes awry. The film has good location work and Monroe sings a tune called “Kiss.” ‘
