Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days

First shown on American Movie Classics, Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days covers the production of "Something's Got to Give," a romantic comedy starring Monroe, Dean Martin, and Cyd Charisse. Monroe was fired during filming shortly before her death, and the movie was eventually scrapped. The centerpiece of the documentary is a restored reconstruction of the surviving footage. "Something's Got to Give" was later produced as Move Over, Darling, with Doris Day ironically filling Monroe's former role.
