"Emotions are supposed to be raw, ugly, brutal…you don’t want someone to ‘sorta’ love you. You want that love to be a bursting flame, not a candle."

Marilyn was frightened, insecure—trusted only her coach and was always late. During our scenes she’d look at my forehead instead of my eyes; at the end of a take, look to her coach, standing behind Jean Negulesco, for approval. If the headshake was no, she’d insist on another take. A scene often went to fifteen or more takes, which meant I’d have to be good in all of them as no one knew which one would be used. Not easy—often irritating. And yet I couldn’t dislike Marilyn. She had no meanness in her—no bitchery. She just had to concentrate on herself and the people who were there only for her. I had met her a few times before, and liked her. Grable and I decided we’d try to make it easier for her, to make her feel she could trust us. I think she finally did.

Marilyn Monroe ABC >> H >> How to Marry a Millionaire

How to Marry a Millionaire, 1953, was Marilyn Monroe's 18th (credited) film. She played blind, stupid, and witty Pola Debevoise. She starred alone side Bette Grable and Lauren Bacall. This film was about the 3 girls trying to find millionaires to love but end up finding true love instead. In this film, Marilyn wears glasses but is worried men won't find her attractive so she walks around "blind as a bat." This was one of the first films that started making people think Marilyn was actually a "dumb blonde" but people forget she was just playing a character. The apartment building used for the filming was located in Sutton Place, NYC. The location of the building began her love for Sutton Place. 3 years later she moved to Sutton Place with future husband, Arthur Miller.
