The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day shakes me! It quakes me! It makes me feel goose-pimply all over!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! I said yesterday that today’s pic would show what I’m thankful for. I know the immediate thought upon seeing the below pic is that I’m a perv and thankful we had such a beautiful woman grace this mortal world… all that’s true, of course, but it’s also for this specific moment, the two people in this moment… this is a shot that took someone from being a star to being immortal. The picture is THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH, the players in this captured moment in history are Marilyn Monroe and director Billy Wilder. The scene you should know even if you haven’t seen the movie. I’m thankful for the output of these two and for this particular moment in being one of the indentifiers of an industry that holds my heart and imagination. Hope you guys enjoy the pic. I’m sure most of you will. heh

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Happy Thanksgiving everybody (yes, even my foreign friends who may be reading!) Tomorrow’s pic features a crazy director and someone named ugly. -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    rumor for the new Supes flick.the only rumor i read two days ago,was that Hardy is playing Hugo Strange and that story of the new movie will be based on the Prey arc of the Legends of the DK comic series.which is possible since the story from that comic arc fits the story continuation of the new film. <p>but you said about the casting.did we have developments on that?

    A friend was discussing that fellas role in Wall Street 2 the other day, and as hes been watching Studio 60 that role too of the old showrunner (that was him right?) I was about to explain that i knew he was familiar (from WS2) from somewhere, and other than Studio 60, when he interjected & told me that blatently those were roles this old aspiring actor had finally made it with. I kept my mouth shut. Now i feel bad....perhaps he was testing me?

    Monroe is definitely not hot

    by DioxholsterImperium

    she isnt someone I would want to fuck, she is simply not attractive she is easily loses when compared to today's hot women, be it models, actress, pornstars or your local slut. I think its her personality or charms that made people like her, however its safe to say that she was dumb, britany spears/jessica simpson dumb. Btw Monroe's face looks like jessica simpson's (YIKES!). Anyway she was clearly not bright, but men at that time were fine with that.

    The Definition Of Hot

    by veteran_of_mu

    There was never and can never be a more beautiful woman. It's not the legs or the boobs or the hourglass or the lips. It's the vulnerability. You don't just want to fuck Marilyn. You want to protect her from the world.

  • Nov. 26, 2010, 7:19 a.m. CST

    what you all like is the mystical idea of her

    by DioxholsterImperium

    The media hyped her big time back then. Shes a nobody in reality, shes not hot or even sexy. Shes kinda overweight, chubby- waist and thighs, arms. she was on drugs and smoked alot, it shows. And her face needs no description, its not something a man would want, lets just say that. I bet alot here have a much hotter girlfriends or wives so stop ogling at Monroe as if shes a higher standard to aim for.

    Knew a guy who spent a day...

    by Hipshot

    With Marilyn, helping her find a house. Name of Bill Rotsler. Great guy, unfortunately gone now. Anyway, he said that she could turn her sex appeal on and off like a friggin' laser. If she thought you could do something for her career, BOOM! She would fry you with it. If you were just normal people, she switched it off. And that for about ten seconds she thought HE could help her career, and it was the most interesting ten seconds of his life...

    CaractacusPotts and Hipster nailed it

    by knightrider

    No movie star/sex symbol since has been able to replicate what Monroe had. Certainly none from DioxholsterImperium's generation. This is why Marilyn is still huge 50 years on; do you really think Megan Fox et al. will be?

  • Nov. 26, 2010, 2:52 p.m. CST


    by knightrider

    Coke has been the Hollywood drug of choice dating back to the silent days, and it's probably safe to say that most in Hollywood do/have done it. And JFK had a pretty good batting average in his Hollywood days - allegedly bedding Gloria Swanson, Sophia Loren, Lee Remick, Gene Tierney, Angie Dickinson, Marlene Dietrich and Jayne Mansfield. There were rumours that he had Audrey Hepburn too. So Marilyn was in good company!

  • Nov. 26, 2010, 2:54 p.m. CST


    by DioxholsterImperium

    no its because celebrates have been exposed for what they truly are, a waste of space. Monroe died before the glamor veil was lifted off her. And the public realized that they are people like us with major flaws and they aint naturally pretty and have plastic surgery. You want today's sex symbol? tough luck, with the advent of porn and influx of sex mags, any mystery women possessed quickly faded away from the limelight. However, if i had to pick one it would be anglina jolie, shes major uglo in my opinion but around the world she is respected as such thanks.

  • Nov. 26, 2010, 3:02 p.m. CST


    by knightrider

    But you're forgetting that the public at large are familiar with Monroe's many, many problems that plagued her personal life, and yet she still retains interest. Her onscreen life was glamourous, offscreen quite pathetic. But she is *still* regarded as the greatest female sex symbol/screen icon Hollywood produced. The body of work she left behind is surprisingly good too.

    What made Monroe so sexy

    by TallanDagwood

    Was not just her looks and her voluptuous body -which both admittedly were fading by late in her career - although she was still amazing, but it was her personality. <p> Other actresses at the time were even more beautiful - Elizabeth Taylor comes immediately to mind. <p> But Taylor never seemed as accessible as Monroe. <p> Perhaps it was that Monroe did light comedies and never really stretched as an actress or that she wore her vulnerabilities out in the open, but that combined with an undeniable sexually supercharged personality and body made her iconic. <p>

    by KilliK

    she was natural brunette. <p>her blonde hair was a result of the Media/Consumer Industry's process to transform her into a manufactured idol aka selling product. <p>not that she didnt deserve her popularity and her declaration as a sex symbol and the iconic status she achieved at the end with her tragic and mysterious suicide(?).
