  1. I like Marilyn, but I like her best in still photos. Listening to her talk is sort of like choking to death on cotton candy. With the exception of the movie “Niagara” – I loved her in that!

    • I read the Clare Boothe Luce play, “The Women” last week — so much more racy than the movie — but again, it’ll always be the Rosalind Russell, Joan Crawford version for me.
