50s Leading Ladies

Film Club Rule #341: They don’t really make actresses like they used to.

Our look at 50s leading ladies starts with Marilyn Monroe. We look past the ditzy character she created and then was saddled with like Bus Stop and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and instead spend more time talking about the films The Misfits and Don’t Bother to Knock. Jeff looks at the fascinating career of Natalie Wood and Heather discusses the offbeat career of Shelley Winters.
