Two of Marilyn’s films are listed in the Hollywood Reporter‘s 100 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time – with All About Eve at 52, and Some Like it Hot at 47. (The top 3 are The Godfather, The Wizard of Oz and Citizen Kane.)

If you think that’s a rather low ranking, you’re right – after all, Some Like it Hot¬†has been voted best comedy of all time by the AFI and many others. And the same two movies¬†are also featured in a forthcoming book from TCM, The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter.
