Relatively early in her career, Marilyn Monroe starred alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names and brightest stars. If it unnerved her, she never let it show. Personally, I think she often (make that VERY often) stole entire scenes and films from her more respected co-stars.
Seriously, don’t even get me started on how many times it happened!
I love her in All About Eve – another film that wasn’t “her” film, yet one in which her presence was very much felt.
If you’ve never seen this wonderful movie (starring Bette Davis, George Sanders, Anne Baxter, Thelma Ritter AND Marilyn Monroe), you can find it on Prime Video (link to the movie on Amazon Prime) or buy the dvd (Amazon link) for your personal collection.
