Friday Flic

1953's Niagara is a stunning thriller featuring Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotten. Fans of Hitchcock and the film noir genre will love this one as it has elements of both. Rose (Monroe) plots with her lover to have her husband (Cotten) murdered while a honeymooning couple become suspicious of the odd couple occupying the suite they were supposed to have. This movie has lots to have Marilyn Monroe in an early (and in my opinion one of her best) roles, you have the building psychological tension, and of course the amazing geography of Niagara Falls.

Memorable quote: The honeymooning wife when her husband asks her why she doesn't where the type of dress Rose wears: "Listen, for a dress like that you've got to start laying plans when you're about 13."

Don't miss it!
