"NIAGARA" MARILYN MONROE, JOSEPH COTTEN 12:30 A.M. EASTERN TUESDAY TCM

Half-past midnight Eastern--  "Niagara"  Joseph Cotten, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Peters, Casey Adams

 

 

Oozing a kind of restless magnatism, Marilyn deceives tormented hubby Joseph Cotten at Niagara Falls with her scheming lover.  Only another vacationing couple (Peters and Adams) at the same tourist court, begin to penetrate their secrets and hope to avert tragedy...

 

Henry Hathaway directed this splashy film noir for maximum atmosphere and suspense in the shadow of the Falls.  Fabulous cinematography, haunting score, sensitive acting by Joseph Cotten and Jean Peters, and the glorious technicolor angst of Marilyn...

Many years ago, we stayed in a hotel at Niagra Falls with many pictures of Marilyn Monroe. I was told that she filmed a picture there, never saw the movie or knew any of the facts. It may not even be standing now. Just a flash from the past. 

 

Thank you, I think I'll tape it.

Cool, @wishmoon!  The location filming they did there was terrific, and a lot of it will look pretty familiar, I imagine.

 

I'd say Marilyn knows how to make an entrance.  Like Casey Adams says,  "Bring out the fire hose":

I already set it up, can't wait to see it. It was an old hotel, I wish I could remember more from my visit but it was so long ago. Again, thanks for posting!

Marilyn Monroe, beautiful but tragic figure comes through in this move.  I have seen it a couple of times and enjoyed and would recommend it. I also like her in Bus Stop and of course Some Like it Hot.  Joseph Cotton, another noteworthy actor is well cast,  an all around good movie to see!

Right, Joseph Cotten is good in this, @spider woman.  I like him so much, it's almost a little hard to see him in this role, essentially a victim of Marilyn's crafty machinations....
