The Dress Circle: Remembering Marilyn Monroe


June 1st will be the 96th anniversary of the birth of Marilyn Monroe, and we’ll be remembering her on this week’s Dress Circle (5/26 7:00 p.m.).  Although she only appeared in 33 films over the course of 15 years until her untimely death 57 years ago, she is arguably still one of the most recognizable people around the world.  Much has been made of her problems and failings, but we just want to remember her performances that were uniquely “Marilyn.”  

Of course, we’ll be sampling songs from “Some Like It Hot” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” but we’ll also be looking at her performances from “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Let’s Make Love,” “Niagara,” and “River of No Return.”  We’ll also be including a scene from “The Seven Year Itch” with her co-star, Tom Ewell.  It’s all-Marilyn on this week’s program.   

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
