Years after his wife, Ellen, was lost at sea, Nick has her declared legally dead and remarries. That same day, Ellen is rescued from a desert island and returns home. This unfinished remake of "My Favorite Wife" was the last film Marilyn Monroe worked on before her death in 1962. Most of the footage was unseen, until it was restored into a 37-minute short which aired on television on June 1, 2001.Written by
20th Century Fox's decision to dump Marilyn Monroe was financial. The studio was already in deep financial trouble with Cleopatra (1963), which, at the time, was becoming the most expensive film ever made. They couldn't afford a bomb, so Monroe was jettisoned. See more »
Considering everything that was happening in Marilyn's life, the footage they have restored and put together is for me her best performance, she wasn't made to speak in a wispery voice that she usually did, but in her own naturally soft and sweet voice. She plays a grown up women with children, not a stupid blonde. Her weight is at her lowest in this DVD and she looks absolutely smashing and elegant. I am very sad that they weren't able to complete the film for it would definitely have been a success. And just for the record Marilyn was supposed to film her nude scene in a skin coloured bikini but she took it off and filmed it nude.As a conclusion, its a very interesting and touching DVD if you want to know the truth about the legend's final days from those who knew her.
