Let's Make Love

A curious picture in many ways: Marilyn Monroe was the superstar, Yves Montand new to Hollywood, but she seems peripheral to the action and he’s in almost every scene. Meanwhile, director George Cukor, always happy with theatrical material, can’t make the off-off-Broadway milieu come to believable life. In short, Let’s Make Love lacks the sparkle promised by its talent roster, and for Monroe especially the bloom is off the rose. This 1960 film was her next to last, and she appears weary, although isolated moments have the old oomph (and she has a terrific romp through her first number, Cole Porter’s “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”). Cameos by Milton Berle, Bing Crosby, and Gene Kelly increase the time-capsule feeling. The biggest failing is the lack of chemistry between Monroe and Montand, yet offscreen they had a romance during filming. A curious picture indeed. –Robert Horton
