Niagara Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: Niagara is the film that began to imprint Marilyn Monroe into the American conscience as an icon.

Set in the popular honeymoon destination of Niagara Falls, the movie contrasts wedded bliss with a broken couple. Niagara is the quintessence of old Hollywood in 1953, a tightly crafted movie executed with precision and style.

  • Conclusion: Would Marilyn Monroe have attained stardom without 'Niagara'? Absolutely! But this slick, engrossing, impeccably appointed thriller hastened the process and provided the up-and-coming actress with a golden opportunity to literally and figuratively strut her stuff.

  • Summary: The complete lack of special features is disappointing because Blu-ray releases of older movies are always an excellent chance to place the films in their proper historical perspective. (Especially when a fascinating figure like Marilyn Monroe is the star.

Niagara (1953)

  • Conclusion: While not as widely acclaimed as some of her subsequent films, Niagara put Marilyn Monroe on the pop-culture map, establishing her platinum blonde screen siren image. The film feels a little quaint today—suggestive more than explicit, with twists that come precisely as expected—but the combination of Marilyn's steamy presence and Joseph MacDonald's gorgeous three-strip Technicolor cinematography makes Niagara a trip worth taking.
