Product Description

Product Description

A young and innocent cowboy discovers the girl of his dreams (Marilyn Monroe) and decides to make her his wife. She is more than reluctant to accept his proposal and he forces her to board a bus headed for Montana. The road is blocked and the journey is interrupted by an overnight stay at Grace's Diner, where her plight is soon revealed to all. Realizing his brute approach will never win her heart, he apologizes and kisses her goodbye, only to discover she really has grown to love him. Acclaimed by many as Marilyn Monroe's first serious acting performance. BUS STOP displays a mixture of humor and pain.


Though it seems dated now, this film adaptation of William Inge's romantic comedy-drama was considered pretty hot stuff in its day, which was 1956. Directed by Joshua Logan from George Axelrod's script of Inge's Broadway hit, the film stars Marilyn Monroe as the kind of woman who can't understand why she always brings out the worst in men. A singer who has attracted the attention of a young rodeo rider (Don Murray) whom she meets on a bus, she finds herself trapped at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere during a blizzard. The young cowboy, whose intentions are honorable, can't control his temper and can't understand why this experienced woman won't take him seriously--and why she rejects him when he begins acting jealous and possessive. Love takes its lumps but comes out slugging in the end, with Marilyn at her vulnerable, jaded best. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I haven't watched all of Marilyn Monroe's movies, but this is my very favourite! Great opening song by the Four Lads. Funny dialogue throughout, as an example, Bo asks Cherie to tell a lady if she knows him, Cherie looks at him and says, "Oh, it's you!" Marilyn is excellent as a hick hillbilly, and she keeps that accent all the way. It's not just Marilyn who acts so well -- all of the cast is excellent as well. I watched the movie years ago, and I wanted to see if I would like it as much this time. I did -- I watched it twice this week. My 14 year old daughter really liked it as well. I asked her what she thought of it, and she said, "Great!" I asked " Which part?," and she said "All of it." One of the charms of the movie is that love wins out. Bo is a real jerk to start with, and then gets humbled; after which he's able to communicate with Cherie properly. Another is that Marilyn doesn't look as she does in other films, but for some flashes. Well written, fun acting.

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.

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.
