This is a great deal for fans of Marilyn Monroe.
It’s the Marilyn Monroe Classic 9 Film Collection which normally goes for about $200. Today (28/7/2015), it’s only $30 which is a crazy 85% off.
The 9 films are some of Monroe’s best known films and include:
- Some Like It Hot
- The Seven Year Itch
- How to Marry a Millionaire
- Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
- River of No Return
- There’s No Business Like Show Business
- Bus Stop
- The Misfits
I haven’t seen many of these but I know that for fans of the actress that this a a steal to own these 9 films. The ones I’m most familiar with are the first four in the list above.
Reviews of the 9 Film Collection
Judging from the reviews on Amazon, I’d say that people are generally satisfied with this collection with 91% of the reviews being 4 and 5 star reviews.
There were some 1 star reviews about the discs being unable to play but those were from people trying to play Blu-ray discs in their DVD players.
Here’s a YouTube video I found with reviews and unboxing of the 9 Film collection.
Alternatively, or if you missed this 85% off deal from Amazon, you can always get the Forever Marilyn Blu-Ray Collection which contains 7 of the films with the exclusion of “Bus Stop” and “Niagara” and goes for just under $40.
The additional film titles are only about $16 each and together all three are about $70 which is still a terrific savings from the $200 price sticker of the 9 Film Collection without the deal.
The Forever Marilyn Collection also has generally great reviews as well but not as good as the 9 Film Collection. I think it’s mainly a packaging issue rather than the exclusion of the two titles.
