Marilyn Monroe & Laurence Olivier
Norma Jeane Mortensen Baker (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962), professionally recognized as Marilyn Monroe, was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. Laurence Kerr Olivier, Baron Olivier, OM (22 May 1907 - 11 July 1989) was an English actor, director, and producer./5

The Prince and the Showgirl is a 1957 British-American Technicolor romantic comedy film produced at Pinewood Studios starring Marilyn Monroe and co-starring Laurence Olivier who also served as director and producer. Filmed in conjunction with Marilyn Monroe Productions, it was written by Terence Rattigan who based the screenplay on his stage play The Sleeping Prince. The production of this film serves as the backdrop for the 2011 film My Week with Marilyn.
CONTEST TIME!! One lucky person will win this LIFE Great Romances DVD boxed set (used, but lovingly and only very briefly)! Produced by the BBC and released in 2005, this 4-disc set includes a series of short documentaries covering the love stories of 20 iconic couples from music and entertainment. Information-wise, they're not the best, but they are loaded with wonderful archival footage. The highlights for me are Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier, and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. However, the set also includes: Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier, Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini, and Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, among others.

"When he appeared on talk shows in the 1990s and 2000s, Rooney almost invariably reminded audiences that he was the number one box office star of 1939, 1940 and 1941. "I was the number one star in the world, you hear me? The world!" He then regaled the host with tales from his Hollywood history. He also said he came up with the stage name "Marilyn Monroe" for blonde innocent Norma Jean Baker, and lost his virginity in a brothel where the tab was paid by show-biz pal Milton Berle. He claimed to have "discovered" Sammy Davis, Jr., and said he turned down the Archie Bunker role in All in the Family. He said that he became a born-again Christian in the early 1970s, when an angel appeared to him in a diner. And he fondly remembered being called "the best actor America ever produced" by Laurence Olivier. At some point, credulity snaps." ...NNDB on The Mickster

Tonight's first movie was "My Week with Marilyn" from 2011, starring Michelle Williams (terrific as Marilyn Monroe), Kenneth Branagh (utterly brilliant as Laurence Olivier), Eddie Redmayne, Emma Watson and Judi Dench (an endearing Sybil Thorndike). I loved this film, I found it funny, touching, sexy, revealing and ultimately, tragic. High marks from me.

Geeky Recommendation = So, we are doing this again considering the last post performed better than 95% of other posts on our page. This week we have 4 fantastic movies for you to watch, if you haven't already. # The Way Way Back (2013) There haven't been many good movies this year, with very few exceptions. This one is one of those. This coming of age independent film warms your heart to its very roots with its larger than life storyline that will make you forget your huge dissapointment with Iron Man 3. Rate: 7.5/10 # My Week With Marylin (2011) This one depicts the making of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, which starred Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). The film focuses on the week in which Monroe spent time being escorted around London by Clark, after her husband, Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott), had left the country. The thing that stands out the most in this is the amazing performance of Michelle Willams as Marylin Monroe for which she was nominated f ...

Excellent article in The Atlantic. Here is a sample.: Marilyn Monroe was baptized by Aimée Semple McPherson, analyzed by Anna Freud, befriended by Carl Sandburg and Edith Sitwell, romanced (if you can call it that) by Jack and Bobby Kennedy, painted by Willem de Kooning, taught acting by Michael Chekhov and Lee Strasberg, photographed by Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. She managed—on the strength of limited dramatic talent and within a studio system that paid no attention to individual ambition—to work with some of the greatest directors in movie history: twice with John Huston, Billy Wilder, and Howard Hawks, and once each with George Cukor, Joseph Mankiewicz, and Laurence Olivier. She was the first Playboy centerfold and one of the first women to own her own production company; she was a nudist and a champion of free love long before these concepts emerged into the national consciousness. She maintained a deep association with the American military that, all on its own, len ...

Watching a couple of the Marilyn Monroe movies that TCM is running today. She was a real conundrum to people who either loved her or hated her. Laurence Olivier said he was ready to kill her, whereas the women in "How to Marry a Millionaire" all got along well with her. Whatever she was like, she left an indelible mark. Nobody can stop talking about her or buying her things even now. She sells magazines when she's on the cover. Rumors are everywhere about her life that will never be resolved. Sometimes a phenomenon like that comes along that teases us forever. Keeps it interesting.
Chillin on a Saturday watchin Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier
lol sorry but its a movie staring Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe has been dead 4 50 years having had 1 President & 1 Attorney General & 1 Laurence Olivier she could have improved the ALP ~ !
- In 1956, at the height of her career, Marilyn Monroe went to England to make a film with Sir Laurence Olivier. (My Week With Marilyn)
Watching the prince and the showgirl with Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe>>
Marilyn Monroe at her best--and most beautiful: THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL, 1957, with Laurence Olivier. MY WEEK WITH MARILYN is about making this great film. The crowning of George V at Westminister shows the Church of England at its best, too..
Just saw: The Prince And The Showgirl (1957) 7/10 An offbeat but still enjoyable rom/com. The best scenes are the ones featuring Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe in the same room together, other than those I did feel that it dragged on. If you do decide to watch this film, i strongly recommend My Week With Marilyn.
Just saw: My Week With Marilyn (2011) 7.7/10 A very underrated biography set during the time when they were shooting The Prince And The Showgirl. It has truly great performances; Michelle Williams is extremely believable as Marilyn Monroe and Kenneth Branagh steals the show as Laurence Olivier. The cinematography is also lovely.
MOVIE REVIEW: "My Week With Marilyn" (2011) A young man will do anything to get into films. He eventually gets a job as a 3rd assisstant director (a gofer posistion). When preproduction is finished, it's announced that Marilyn Monroe will be the star. Marilyn gives the director *** and the young man (Colin) falls in love with her. I love movies about making movies, I love Marilyn Monroe and I loved this movie! Michelle Williams is freakin' unbelivable as Marilyn Monroe! Vivian Liegh and Laurence Olivier make great characters while Judi Dench and Emma Watson give great performances. Overall, a good film. 8.5/10
