  • Ponderous

    Good job by Kim Stanley, but the script was ponderous and literary. There's an interesting long scene between Stanley and Nolan that has few lines. The movie never shows us why Stanley's character was a famous actress. We never see her at work. Chayesfsky may have had Monroe in mind for some surface details but the film doesn't capture her in any way and probably doesn't aspire to. Her marriage to DiMaggio failed because he ignored her, didn't want her to have a career, and abused her. Monroe's psychological problems stemmed from clinical depression, a serious illness, not merely from an unhappy childhood. She never lived in a movie star's home, just apartments, a renovated farm house, and, briefly, a modest house of her own.

  • Talk about over-rated

    • 3/6/11

    This film, if remembered at all, is known as one of the handful of performances by Kim Stanley. Considered arguably the greatest stage actress of her generation, this film is looked to as evidence of Stanley's genius. It isn't there. She gives a credible performance as do Steven Hill and Lloyd Bridges. However, this film meanders, is boring and really aside from Stanley's constant breakdowns, tells us virtually nothing about the title character. In addition, she is simply neither well cast nor vaguely believable in the role.A real letdown.

    It was an amazing experience to observe such an excellent actress embody her character with every part of her being. she didn't appear to be acting but living in her role. I'm not familiar with this lead actress and I don't know why she didn't make more films, but I will be on the lookout for her from now on. While there are several key actors in the movie, I would rate the first husband in the film as another actor who did an excellent job, though his part was short in comparison.
