"Don't Bother to Knock" (1952)

Marilyn Monroe as a mentally deranged babysitter? Yup. And it's worth a looksee, if only to prove that La Monroe could actually ACT. It's the darkside of her fragile wounded sparrow persona. A noir with an insular setting, a big city hotel, has Richard Widmark in a relaxed performance as a fellow guest who meets the star for a possible hookup...then things go very, very wrong. A witty script with some funny lines amongst a few still chilling moments of sustained suspense.
