This largest grossing film of 1960 starred the voluptuous Marilyn Monroe and French heartthrob,Yves Montand. Directed by famed George Cukor and written by Monroe's then husband, writer Arthur Miller (along with Norman Krasna), it also starred Tony Randall and Frankie Vaughan. Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly and Milton Berle appeared in cameo roles as well.
Monroe was considered a respected actress in her own right during this period (she had been studying with the famous Lee Strasberg at the Actor's Studio since the the mid-1950s) , and so 20th Century Fox decided to capitalize on her success the year before in the blockbuster movie, Some Like It Hot. Let's Make Love was a high-budget production, based on a Jerry Wald story about a rich, good looking and debonair bachelor who falls in love with a leading lady. Some movie critics panned it, however, Marilyn won the 1960 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. She even sang the popular Cole Porter song, "My Heart Belongs to Daddy". Naturally, rumors abound at the time of an affair between Monroe and Montand (both of whom were married to others).
All Marilyn Monroe movie posters are popular and sought after by collectors and this particular one features her better than most others. The condition of the poster is spectacular, free of rips and tears or other detracting issues. It is also printed on a sturdier paper stock than most other posters, and without the typical folds (remember posters typically were mailed by studios in envelopes ; this particular one was shipped in a round cylinder and thus remains well preserved). It's a beauty and ready for framing---just pick out the matching colors for matting and your favorite wall. If you love Marilyn---and who could not---this will be a perfect complement to your entertainment center.It will brighten up any room and cause the viewer to take that "second look". Comes rolled in a sturdy shipping tube.
