This afternoon it watched the Pretty Little Liars Halloween Special episode, (make fun of my choice I don't care.) One of the Actress, (Ashley Benson who is now dating James Franco) went as Marilyn Monroe and wore the iconic white Seven Year Itch Halter dress. This made me think of a topic that might be kind of odd. How many movies and TV shows can you remember where an actress was wearing the forementioned dress?

*Fade To Black* (1980) - Linda Kerridge as a Marilyn lookalike wears it in one fantasy scene.

 

Any number of tv episodes and movies featuring a costume/Halloween party scene with someone dressed as Marilyn always wears that particular dress. That includes men in drag...they always wear that particular dress. It's the iconic Marilyn outfit.

Well, another icon, Madonna, did not use the iconic white halter dress when she impersonated Marilyn; she helped herself become an icon by wearing another iconic MM dress, the pink satin sheath Marilyn wore for the "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" song/production number from GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES. Of course Madonna used it for her "Material Girl" video

In "Tommy", the Who "rock opera", there is a whole parade of Marilyns in the white dress as part of some religious ceremony. In "Insigificance", the Nicholas Roeg film, Theresa Russell recreates the scene, with Gary Busey as her ball player husband lurking in the background.

On one of the last episodes of Quantum Leap Sam leaps into the body of Marilyn Monroe's chauffeur. It turn out her new assistant is trying to take her place in a film, (not sure which one). Sam has to save Marilyn, (even though her eventual fate is not changed.)

 

The assistant was played by Liz Vassey. She has done a lot of television, most notably Wendy Simms on the original CSI, (she's the DNA specialist with the dark hair and the bangs.) She look insanely beautiful in that iconic dress. I think my brain melted.

I never got into NCIS but it think Paulry Perette is cute. She was good in a film called The Price Of Kissing, (I got it on my DVR along with about 50 other films.)

 

(Our local ABC affiliate used to show odd IFC type films Saturday night at 2AM. I now get IFC so it doesn't really mater that they stopped showing them years ago. The Price Of Kissing was one of them.)

If it's annoying to dig up an old thread I'm sorry, but I saw another dress that looked just likethe one in The Seven Year Itch. Even though it's long pat Halloween, Emily Van Camp wore one just like it to a Masquerade Ball on the latest episode of Revenge. Lets just say she really fills it out.
