For my blog I have chosen Love Nest (1951), a film co-starring June's Star of the Month, Marilyn Monroe.
Love Nest (1951)Love Nest is a 1951 pleasant but bland comedy-drama starring June Haver, William Lundigan, Frank Fay, Jack Paar and Marilyn Monroe in an early supporting role. The film is directed by Joseph Newman.
Overall the film is funny, however it begins quite slow. Marilyn Monroe first appears after about 30 minutes into the film, and the pace begins to pick up once she appears. Had Marilyn not appeared in this film, the film would not be as enjoyable to watch, and would have been yet another forgotten b-grade comedy.
Something I found amusing was seeing married couple Jim and Connie sleeping in separate single beds. This was a censorship requirement of the time, as a man and woman were not permitted to appear in a bed together.
