Stitching Marilyn Monroe together . . .

Dance · Film

From “Let’s Make Love” (1960), a somewhat entertaining movie, if a bit of a mess. Bing Crosby and Gene Kelly put in good cameos, and Yves Montand, who is wonderful, escapes the Monroe challenge unscathed. In the photo below, tucked behind La Marilyn, the ubiquitous Jack Cole, on alert. Director George Cukor used the choreographer as his surrogate to deal with her. Cole slogged MM through “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”; and while she’s kind of painful to watch, the Jack Cole male dancers who cart her around are boffo.
