Released in 1962, the same year that America's obsession died of an overdose of barbiturates in her Brentwood home, this Marilyn Monroe release compiles her tunes from the classic musicals There's No Business Like Show Business (1954), River of No Return (1954), and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). Here performing songs from such legendary American songwriters as Hoagy Carmichael and Irving Berlin, Marilyn may not have been the most classically trained vocalist in history but the voice is undeniably recognizable; she performed here as an American icon, and looked good doing it. In case there is any doubt about that fact, this release comes with a "ready-to-frame" picture of Ms. Monroe. Another American icon reissued on Rumble.
