Well, duh. That is, to put aside for a moment all ethical considerations concerning the diamond trade, which weren’t troubling Marilyn Monroe or anyone else at the time. It’s been ages since I saw this film and I still want the dress she’s wearing in this video, ridiculous bustle/bow thing and all. Occasion to wear it wouldn’t go amiss, either. Alas for aspirations towards a long gone champagne lifestyle on a present day beer income.
But before the frock of ultimate pinkness makes it appearance, check out how utterly bizarre that set is. You’ve got to feel sorry for those poor women doing duty as lampstands and chandeliers (as well as for the crazed loon who thought it all up in the first place). Truly, struggling actresses had it tougher in those days, if playing a piece of stage scenery was their big break.
