"Marilyn: The Untold Story" (1980) Catherine Hicks TV movie DVD
Based on the well-researched novel by Norman Mailer, "Marilyn: The Untold Story" gives you one of the most brilliant and accurate portrayals of screen legend Marilyn Monroe ever to grace the screen, large or small, in Catherine Hicks. She not only looks and mimics the famous actress, she seems to actually embody her spirit in this outstanding TV-movie. Once you have this very comprehensive film, "Marilyn and Bobby: Her Final Affair", which chronicles convincingly a rumored affair with Bobby Kennedy after being dumped by JFK (also sold here by me) and the recent theatrical hit "My Week With Marilyn" available commercially, you'll have an complete filmic biography of one of the screen's greatest stars ever to grace the silver screen, one who, as the narration here states, had everything she wanted but not what she needed, and perhaps that's true. Whatever your thoughts about Marilyn and her infamous personal life, as well as her "possible suicide" at the age of 36 after being dumped by 20th Century Fox, you cannot doubt the impact she had on the lives of so many and on the world of film in general. Hicks' performance is absolutely uncanny here, as we trace Marilyn's early fame as pin-up girl to GI's the world over, her meteoric rise to film stardom at 20th Century Fox (which never gave her the kinds of serious dramatic roles she so desperately yearned to play), her many marriages to some of the greatest men of her time (famed Hollywood agent Johnny Hyde, baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, who was perhaps the one great love of her life, and playwright Arthur Miller), to her final moments on earth alone and overdosed in her bedroom, the circumstances of which continue to this day to be fodder for the rumor mill...was she "helped" to her overdose? Denied care that might have saved her? We may never know the truth but we all know the rumors. Hicks is backed by some exceptional talent, including Richard Basehart as Johnny Hyde, Frank Converse perfect as Joe DiMaggio, Jason Miller as Arthur Miller, Viveca Lindfors as Marilyn's acting coach Natasha Lytess and Sheree North as Marilyn's psychotic, depressive mother Gladys in the early portion of the film before Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe. We see tidbits of her film career as re-enacted beautifully by Hicks, but more importantly are given some insight into the woman behind the Hollywood facade, an insight which genuinely elicits your sympathy for a girl who was simply not ready for the price she had to pay for fame and stardom.

The region-free (playable worldwide) DVD comes to you in a slim DVD case with full artwork shown.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I burn these DVDs on an as-ordered basis, you may experience a shipping delay of a day or possibly two, but I try to avoid this if time permits!

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
