Bus Stop, 1956
Directed by Joshua Logan. Starring Marilyn Monroe, Don Murray. When Marilyn Monroe made Bus Stop, she had just completed a stint training at the Actor’s Studio in New York with Lee Strasberg. She was always underestimated as a serious actor. If you’ve always doubted her acting chops, see this beautiful movie based on the stage play written by William Inge (Picnic). 96 minutes. Unrated.
