REVIEWS:





"Hold onto your chairs, everybody, and get set for a rattling
surprise. Marilyn Monroe has finally proved herself an actress in
'Bus Stop.' She and the picture are swell! .... For the striking
fact is that [Director Joshua] Logan has got her to do a great deal
more than wiggle and pout and pop her big eyes and play the synthetic
vamp in this film. .... He has got her to be the tinseled floozie,
the semimoronic doll who is found in a Phoenix clip-joint by a cowboy
of equally limited brains and is hotly pursued by this suitor to a
snowbound bus stop in the Arizona wilds. And, what's most important,
he has got her to light the small flame of dignity that sputters
pathetically in this chippie and to make a rather moving sort of her. ....
A great deal is owed to Mr. [Don] Murray. His tempestuous semi-idiocy
exploding all around a juvenile softness sets up a mighty force to be
curbed by Miss Monroe. And the fact that she fitfully but firmly summons
the will and the strength to humble him...attests to her new acting skill."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; September 1, 1956
