"She was an absolute genius as a comic actress, with an
extraordinary sense for comic dialogue. It was a
God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there
were ten projects that came to me and I'd start working on
them and I'd think, "It's not going to work, it needs Marilyn
Monroe." Nobody else in that orbit; everyone else is
earthbound by comparison."

- Billy Wilder, director of "Seven Year Itch" & "Some Like it
Hot" speaking about Marilyn circa 1984
"Marilyn is as near a genius as any actress I ever knew. She is an artist
beyond artistry. She is the most completely realized and authentic film
actress since Garbo. She has that same unfathomable mysteriousness..
She is pure cinema."

-  Joshua Logan, director of "Bus Stop"
"Marilyn was an incredible person to act with...the most marvelous I
ever worked with, and I have been working for 29 years."

- Montgomery Clift, co-star in
"The Misfits"
"You say hello to her or it's a nice day today, and she answers with
a line from the script. She forgets everything but the work."

- Jean Negulesco, director of "How to Marry a Millionaire"

"As a person my work is important to me. My work
is the only ground I‘ve ever had to stand on.
Acting is very important. To put it bluntly I seem to
have a whole super-structure with no foundation,
but I‘m working for the foundation."

- Marilyn
"She went right down into her own personal experience for
everything, reached down and pulled something out of herself
that was unique and extraordinary. She had no techniques. It was
all the truth, it was only Marilyn. But it was Marilyn, plus. She
found things, found things about womankind in herself."

- John Huston, director of "The Asphalt Jungle" and "The Misfits"
"Fifty years on, we're still watching her movies and talking
about her, thats not a dumb woman trust me."

- Lauren Bacall, co-star in "How to Marry a Millionaire"
"Despite Olivier's unprintable comments about her inexperience
and unprofessionalism, Marilyn had appeared in virtually the same
number of films as he had (The Prince and the Showgirl was her
25th to his 28th) and her relationship with the camera was more
intimate than his."

- Dame Sybil, TPATS co-star
"Acting isn't something you do. Instead of doing it, it occurs. If
you're going to start with logic, you might as well give up. You can
have conscious preparation, but you have unconscious results."

- Marilyn
"Marilyn's a phenomenon of nature, like Niagara Falls and the
Grand Canyon. All you can do is stand back and be awed by it."

- Nunnally Johnson, producer of How to Marry a Millionaire
"I have great faith that her career would have continued. She was
one of the greatest draws in the history of motion pictures, and
today I think she would have been tops. Marilyn had a childlike
quality which made men adore her. Yet women weren't jealous. Like
John Wayne and a few other giants, she had a star quality that had
nothing to do with acting. . . . What women in pictures can compare
with her today? Nobody."

- Ben Lyon
"She had this absolute unerring touch with comedy, she acted as
if she didn't quite understand why it was funny.. Which is what
made it so funny."

- George Cukor director of "Let's Make Love" & the
uncompleted "Something's Got to Give"
