Marilyn Monroe in "Bus Stop"
New Year's Potpourri week begins at Trailers from Hell with director Dan Ireland introducing "Bus Stop," featuring Marilyn Monroe in her first screen performance after studying with Lee Strasberg, and directed by Joshua Logan ("Picnic").

Marilyn Monroe's performance in "Bus Stop" finally convinced critics that she was indeed an accomplished actress (in a role originated onstage by Kim Stanley). Director Joshua Logan filmed Marilyn's live rendition of "That Old Black Magic" with two cameras and an offscreen orchestra, eliminating the need for lip-synching to playback, and often let her takes run on and on without stopping so he could cull the best moments in the editing room.
