As part of an ongoing series about Some Like it Hot, the Hollywood Revue blog argues that Marilyn’s most enduringly popular film also contains her finest performance.
“Sure, Marilyn was funny in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, but you see none of her dramatic skills there. If you only watched Don’t Bother to Knock, you’d never take her for a comedienne. But Some Like it Hot offers a look at everything that made Marilyn great. It let her be a bombshell, it let her show off her comedic talents, and it let her have moments of melancholy as well.”
