NIAGARA

Plus vintage Noir trailers!

(1953, Henry Hathaway) Marilyn Monroe married to Joseph Cotten? Even honeymooning couple Jean Peters and Casey Adams are taken aback — but then Joe’s back from a mental hospital. Yes, there’s a triangle there, and a murder looming — but which one is it going to be? Views of the Falls vie with views of Marilyn, in rare Technicolor Noir. Approx. 89 min. DCP.

“This isn’t a Marilyn you want to embrace and protect. As Rose, she’s alert and defiant, a woman who has defined exactly what she wants and for what she wants and has forged a plan to help her get it. This performance, among the star's finest, gives the lie to the idea that she couldn't really act. What it suggests, instead, is that Marilyn was a natural. In Niagara, [she’s] self-determined, boldly sexual, almost impossibly cruel. And still, you feel for her.”
– Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
