Bus Stop (1956)

So for years I have owned both Marilyn Monroe DVD Box Sets. I fell in love with her after my very first viewing of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" during a screening in one of my second year film studies classes. Before I had spent years thinking she was some blonde clueless tart, the trouble was I had no basis with which to come to that conclusion. My taste in Hollywood starlets was more focused at the time on Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, especially in her Hitchcock roles. Surprise was mine after watching Blondes, Monroe was whitty, charming and utterly hilarious in her role as Lorelei Lee. After that, it was instant love and I have not turned back since.
