Of all the films that I would love to see in a Blu-ray collection, I don’t know if I could find a set more perfect than this. Marilyn Monroe has fascinated me since I was a little girl. I used to try to dress up like her in Hollywood glam style. I wasn’t endowed with the appropriate curves back then, but I made do with tissue paper stuffed in all the right pieces of clothing and tight belts. One of my favorite films of all time is Some Like it Hot and her amazing career led her to act along side legendary men and women like Lauren Bacall, Betty Grable, Robert Mitchum, Clark Gable, Montgomery Clift, Jack Lemmon and of course, Tony Curtis. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to not only watch the Forever Marilyn collection in it’s entirety, but also to share it with my Seven Days of Marilyn installment starting August 1. I will review one of these fantastic films each day until I have watched and adored all of them! I look forward to seeing the films refreshed by the Blu-ray quality and features that are available in this collection! Follow me over the next week to see what all the hub-bub is about and Enter our Forever Marilyn: The Blu-ray Collection Giveaway plus check out a clip HERE!
