Blu-ray Release: Let’s Make Love

Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

The superlative George Cukor (A Star is Born) directs a pair of genuine stars, Marilyn Monroe (Love Happy) and Yves Montand (Grand Prix), in the whimsical 1960 musical comedy Let’s Make Love.

Marilyn plays an aspiring actress/intellectual who runs into trouble when her off-Broadway revue spoofs a stuffy French billionaire (Montand) who touchily plans to shut down the show – until, that is, he meets its leading lady.

Nice support is provided by Tony Randall (Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex*) and Frankie Vaughan, with amusing cameos from Gene Kelly (Singin’ in the Rain) and Bing Crosby (White Christmas), while classic songs from Cole Porter are joined by newer delights from Sammy Cahn and James Van Heusen.

Special features on Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition include an isolated music track and an original theatrical trailer.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
