Colin Clark, younger brother of Alan Clark and son of Lord Kenneth Clark wanted to work in the movies. When Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh came to dine with his parents, he mentioned his ambition to them and they arranged for him to work as 3rd assistant director on the forthcoming The Prince and the Showgirl (1957). Colin kept a diary throughout the production and this documentary is a dramatization of that diary with lots of behind the scenes footage of Marilyn (and Arthur Miller) in England and of the production of the film with all of its associated problems.

Not what you might think...
30 November 2004 | by Toxic-If-SwallowedSee all my reviews

I was expecting a lot more from this TV Show - I generally make it a habit to watch any Marilyn show that airs, but I really wouldn't bother with this one. The male narration gets really annoying and it's not really accurate, just one young boys account of working on the set of "The Prince and the Showgirl" and seeing Monroe and Olivier. It actually has some crude content, as well, so I wouldn't recommend it for the younger audience. I'd recommend you'd read a book instead to find out the facts instead of watching this. It's more of a "fun show" about Marilyn - not hard-hitting facts. All in all, don't waste your time watching it. It's definitely not what I thought it would be and I wouldn't watch it again...
