Others have commented on the story-line and characters of this classic -- this was also Don Murray's film debut, which I don't remember seeing mentioned (although I'll admit I didn't wade through all the reviews).

Probably its best feature, unrelated to story and stars, is that Fox did an incredible job of restoring the film as well as remastering for DVD. Audio and video are excellent, and if you didn't already know, you'd never be able to guess how old the original film really is.

So says the fatherly Virgil to his younger friend Bo Decker following a conversation where Virgil suggests its time Bo find himself a woman, "a plain looking, little old gal." Bo though wants to find himself an angel. However, the conversation takes a bit of a chauvinistic tone from the green and inexperienced Bo, who is headed to Phoenix to compete in the rodeo. Says Bo, "That steer this moment--he didn't wanna get throwed, did he? Well, I throwed him. Some wild horse you borke in, he don't wanna be broke, do he? But you don't let what he wants stop you. So what makes you think a gal's gonna be any different?" To paraphrase Virgil in a more contemporary way, "Houston, we've got a problem."
Bo's other problem is that he tends to overdo everything. He does pushups in the bus, to the surprise and annoyance of the passengers and bus driver. But the worst flaw in his character is that he has no manners. As the bus driver asks him later, "Were you born in a barn?" Well, close, as he has been isolated on a ranch all his life.
At the Blue Dragon inn, Bo finds his "angel," a much put-upon singer named Cheri. He falls so in love with her that he announces to a stunned Virgil, and more than stunned Cheri, that he has found his girl and is going to marry her tomorrow.
Cheri herself has a long string of boyfriends and lovers, something that the naive Bo is unaware of. In her opening scene, when she's resting on the window sill, she is instantly harassed by rowdy cowboys pawing at her, and then by the manager. She's clearly not lived a happy life, but she does have a dream to go to Hollywood.

Very funny adaptation of the William Inge play finds Marilyn Monroe romantically abducted by country bumpkin who has fallen in love with her. Monroe is ravishing and sympathetic as the saloon girl Cheri turned unwilling fiance and Don Murray in a debut performance as the hardheaded Bo finds a great mix of whooping and hollering and real romantic depth. Some of Bo's manhandling of Cheri gets a bit harsh in accordance with cinematic sexual mores of 1956; a skirt tail is ripped off, she is helplessly hoisted upon his shoulder, but this is effectively an innocent and touching film with just the right amount of naivete.

Yes Monroe gives one of her greatest performances (the other being in THE MISFITS). However, after directing two different productions of the William Inge's excellent character driven play of the same title, I must say that I cannot objectively judge this wretched adaptation.
Gone is all of Inge's carefull character sketches and complex study of human nature. BUS STOP as a story has never been solely star vehicle. Cherie is but a small part of an ensemble cast. Gone in this film version is Dr. Lyman and his resurrection in the hands of the neophyte Elma. Gone too is the sexual dynamics of bus driver Carl and the lonely Grace. The setting change from Kansas to Idaho loses so much of the midwestern heart that drives Inge's central narrative.
Again, the film is worth watching for Monroe's fine star making performance, but if anyone has read, scene or produced the heart-breakingly beautiful original play, the movie adaptation just doesn't add up.

This story is about a vulnerable hillbilly saloon entertainer, Cherie (Marilyn Monroe), who is bowled over and smothered by an unworldly, manner less rodeo rider, Bo (Don Murray) who seeks to find a lady companion. They are two opposites that end up attracting in the end. A sweet story, Bus Stop was very enjoyable although a little unbelievable at times. Marilyn Monroe is sweet, naive but gorgeous as usual. Hard to believe that she would end up marrying Bo and being happy. Hmm...
The story begins when a rough rural cowboy sets off to a Phoenix rodeo with his friend Virgil. Virgil suggests that it is time for Bo to meet a lady friend. Bo sets his sights high, saying that he will know the girl when he sees her. Then, enters Cherie (said with a French accent) on stage whisperingly singing "that ole black magic". Bo falls head over heals for her on first sight when searching for his first "angel". Bo, inexperienced and naive about women, believes that he has found his wife in Cherie (he calls her Cherry) and proceeds to bring her aboard their Greyhound-style passenger bus on their return back home to Montana.
Cherie is confused as things are moving quickly. She struggles to get free of Bo, even claiming to a fellow passenger that she is being abducted against her will by Bo and his ranch companion Virgil (Arthur O'Connell). She doesn't want to marry Bo. Everything changes when the bus is stopped due to a blizzard and they are stuck all together at the bus stop lodge for the night.
Grace's Diner is where bus driver Carl ends his frustration with Bo and decides to fight him to stop him from his angry fit once he discovers Cherie was trying to escape.
