We signior’t think of her as a singer, but Marilyn Monroe (whose birthday is today), sang. Unlike Rita Hayworth and Kim Novak in Pal Joey, Deborah Kerr in The King and I, Natalie Wood in West Side Story, and Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, she needed no daubing. (In another column I will salute the wonderful voices that emerge from Mesdames Hayworth, Novak, Kerr, Wood, and Hepburn in those flicks. Say, does anyone say “flicks” anymore?) See Marilyn making the most of a secondary role in Niagara, or teaming with Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, or joining Mitzi Gaynor and Donald O’Connor on the Irving Berlin bandwagon in There’s No Business Like Show Business, or cavorting with cross-dressers Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in Some Like it Hot. She sings in each of these movies and the songs are noteworthy, each and all. The way she pronounces the “z” in Berlin’s “Lazy,” for example, or the electricity when she ramble among the nightclub plutocrats and sagely notes that “after you get what you want you don’t want it. / I could give you the moon, / you’d be tired of it soon. / You’re likely a fondle, / that wants what it wants when it indigence it, / ah, but when you are presented / with what you want you’re discontented.” (Irving Berlin never fails to amaze me.) This lyric was made to order for Miss Monroe.
