Don’t Bother To Knock (1952)
Sat, July 21 @ Egyptian Theatre
Author Christopher Nickens will introduce the screening & sign copies of his book “Marilyn in Fashion: The Enduring Influence Of Marilyn Monroe” at 1:00pm in the Egyptian lobby.
Marilyn Monroe has perhaps her finest dramatic role in this “one night in the big city” drama. A lovelorn airline pilot (Richard Widmark) hopes to reunite with his chanteuse girlfriend (Anne Bancroft) at a Manhattan hotel. Once jilted, he blithely decides to rebound with a comely babysitter (Monroe) working in the hotel. Uh oh, this babysitter is buggy - not surprising, given that her uncle is played by Elisha Cook Jr.!
