Monkey Business (1952, 97 min)
In this comedy classic, a chimpanzee gets loose in Dr. Barnaby Fulton's (Cary Grant) lab and accidentally completes the youth formula Fulton has been working on for years. But the industrious chimp also dumps the potion into the office water cooler- which becomes clear only when Fulton's staff mysteriously grows younger and younger. The chemistry really explodes when his voluptuous secretary (Monroe) gets a taste of the potion.

Niagara (1953, 89 min)
A vacationing couple, George and Rose Loomis (Joseph Cotton and Marilyn Monroe), rent a quaint bungalow at romantic Niagara Falls. But Rose and her lover plan to murder the unsuspecting George- in the falls! A dramatic departure from her more upbeat roles, Monroe's fascinating performance as the scheming murderess paints a powerfully dark portrait of human sexuality.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953, 97 mins.)
Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but this blonde bombshell prefers diamonds, and lots of them! Glamorous showgirl Marilyn sets sail for France, intent on marrying a rich, yet boring, beau. But anything can - and does - happen with the beautiful and fun-loving Jane Russell acting as chaperone. From celebrated director Howard Hawks, this musical comedy classic features Marilyn's signature rendition of the hit show tune "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend."

There's No Business Like Show Business (1954, 118 mins.)
Marilyn Monroe and an all-star cast are featured in Irving Berlin's tuneful depiction of the trials and triumphs of a veteran vaudeville family. The talented Donahue family has plenty of love to get them through the hard times - that is, until they cross paths with a rising starlet (Monroe) whose own ambitions may make or break them. Co-starring Ethel Merman and Donald O'Connor, this delightful classic delivers dazzling production numbers and masterful show tunes!
