We're Having a Heatwave!

There's No Business Like Show Business 1954
In observance of the heatwave that we're having, I thought I'd serve up some steamy Marilyn Monroe from the 1954 movie "There's No Business Like Show Business".

This was one of those very expensive movie musicals that was popular in the mid fifties where they would take a composer, Irving Berlin in this case, and wrap a movie script around their most popular songs. 

The title song actually comes from his musical; Annie Get Your Gun which was a hit for Ethel Merman on Broadway ten years before.  This movie was Merman's first appearance in wide screen, and if you check out her dress in the above photo, you'll know why it was filmed in CinemaScope.

Though the title song has become somewhat of a cliché, this version by Marilyn cer-tain-ly, cer-tain-ly, cer-tain-ly ain't. Enjoy, but grab a fan before you do!
