TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

Today and tonight are dedicated to Marilyn Monroe, and this 1959 classic, co-starring Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, is only the tip of a very hot iceberg. Also shown in this MM tribute:  a ridiculously generous bounty, including 1957’sThe Prince and the Showgirl (the movie re-enacted by Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilynat 2 p.m. ET; 1953’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes at 4:15 p.m. ET; 1955’s The Seven Year Itch at 6 p.m. ET; 1956’s Bus Stop at 10:15 p.m. ET; 1953’s How to Marry a Millionaire at midnight ET; and 1954’s There’s No Business Like Show Business at 1:45 a.m. ET. That’s seven memorable movies by Monroe in a six-year span. Put in that context, no wonder she was exhausted, and rebellious.
