Marilyn Monroe was a marvelous comedic actress. I just love the way she looks in this photo from "How to Marry a Millionaire"! In the movie, Marilyn is hilariously nearsighted ("Blind as a bat!"), but hates to wear her glasses where any man might see her. She falls for a phony Arab oil tycoon, not knowing he's really a crooked speculator. Luckily, when she takes a plane to meet him, she misreads an airport sign and ends up on the wrong plane. She sits next to a man (actor David Wayne), also wearing glasses, who thinks she's "quite a strudel" and encourages her to put hers on. Love at first sight!!
