Product Description

Product Description

A young and innocent cowboy discovers the girl of his dreams (Marilyn Monroe) and decides to make her his wife. She is more than reluctant to accept his proposal and he forces her to board a bus headed for Montana. The road is blocked and the journey is interrupted by an overnight stay at Grace's Diner, where her plight is soon revealed to all. Realising his brute approach will never win her heart, he apologises and kisses her goodbye, only to discover she really has grown to love him. Acclaimed by many as Marilyn Monroe's first serious acting performance, Bus Stop displays a mixture of humour and pain.

From Amazon.co.uk

Though it seems dated now, Bus Stop was considered pretty hot stuff in 1956. Directed by Joshua Logan from George Axelrod's script of William Inge's comic-romantic Broadway hit, the film stars Marilyn Monroe as the kind of woman who can't understand why she always brings out the worst in men. She attracts the attention of a young rodeo rider (Don Murray) while on a bus, and finds herself trapped at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere during a blizzard. The young cowboy, whose intentions are honourable, can't control his temper and can't understand why this experienced woman won't take him seriously--and why she rejects him when he begins acting jealous and possessive. Love takes its lumps but comes out slugging in the end, with Marilyn at her vulnerable, jaded best. --Marshall Fine, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When Beauregard "Bo" Decker [Don Murray], a naïve rodeo rider, meets saloon performer Chérie [Marilyn Monroe], he falls head over boots in love.

Format: DVD
Monroe plays a rather promiscuous bar girl in Phoenix who hopes to get to Hollywood in a kind of her real life story,enters the rodeo champ from Montana as the exuberant yet virginal 'red-blooded' cowboy,DON MURRAY who has come to Phoenix for the 'rodeo competition' and to find the angelic gal of his dreams .

The movie deals with a great human dilemma as to what is more important to be happy ,your perception of an ideal life partner or your contentment with the reality,Murray is superb as he assumes this show girl from a 'cheap joint' in a flashy vulgar dress to be his angel, and monroe shuns the false image he breeds of her ,yet agrees to the charade to be his girl till the rodeo ends for a fee ,of course as Murray wins the competition ,he then persuades her to take the bus back to his hometown in Montana .

The road movie kicks in with a medley of characters when they end up stranded in a 'bus stop' caught in a blizzard and here a great drama unfolds where sexual attitudes ,love and behavioural concepts are intellectually challenged in a simple yet truthful manner,the two characters and their trangressive attitudes to the opposite sex melt convincingly and the dialogue is plain but intelligent to the core ,this is a wise movie on the 'battle of sexes' and how and what a man and woman want from each other so as to be happy .

Monroe is truly great as is Murray in his debut role ,they look terrific together and yet there is a tenderness between the 2 rough and wild characters they play,this is an infinitely soft and mellow love story set against the wild West and the 'bus stop' becomes a metaphor for the human race and their quest for emotional security in any dwelling if they are truly content .

Marilyn in a very sympathetic role with a Texas accent being pursued by a cowboy intent on marrying her...
I'll bet there won't be one red blooded guy watching who doesn't want to be the Sir Galahad and protect her.

Delightful comedy showcases Miss M in her best role as a down on her luck saloon singer who becomes the object of the affections of a rodeo rider Beauregard "Bo" Decker (Don Murray).He is fresh off the ranch and not versed in any social graces whatsoever so what he sees he wants- she is the gal for him.
Joshua Logan does an impeccable job, George Axelrod's script squeezes out all the laughs from William Inge's stage play but it is the performances that really shine here.Arthur O'Connell is his usual charming self as Bo's mentor,newcomer Don Murray is excellent as the spirited cowboy(the rodeo scenes are nicely done by the way)and Marilyn in her career best turn is emotionally raw,touching and funny.Her rendition of "That old Black Magic " is a gem.Some of her lines almost define her public life.
Beautifully done.

A nice movie. A cow boy finds his "angel" on his way to a rodeo and, as she will not have him, kidnaps her until she knows better and follows him voluntarily to be his wife. Marilyn Monroe combines coquettery and innocence. The movie would be perfect but for the male protagonist who keeps on shouting from beginning to end and makes you want to shoot him on the spot.

Another of Marilyn Monroes films and a classic.Although I am biased and enjoy everything she ever made,this proved that she could act and had a knack for comedy.Good Blu-ray transfer and a bargain at the price
