    I sure hope this is true. Bill Hunt is never wrong though.
    Although there's been no sign of a studio announcement as yet, Amazon is reporting a July 31st release of a Fox Marilyn Monroe Blu-ray Collection that will include The Seven Year Itch (1955), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), There's No Business Like Show Business (1954), and River of No Return (1954).
    I will be there for the pre order. I sure hope it is soon

    Specifically it is Amazon Canada that has the pre-orders. There is nothing on Amazon US yet.

    That usually means that it is going to be a retailer exclusive here in the states. Fox has done this most frequently with Walmart, but lately with Screen Archives on some classic titles.

Starting today (June 1st), Marilyn fans around the world can pre-order the Collection with online retailers.

    The Misfits
    A sexy divorcée falls for an over-the-hill cowboy who is struggling to maintain his romantically independent lifestyle in early-sixties Nevada.

    Some Like It Hot
    When two musicians witness a mob hit, they flee the state in an all-female band disguised as women, but further complications set in.

    How to Marry A Millionaire
    Three women set out to find eligible millionaires to marry, but find true love in the process.

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
    Two singers, best friends Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw travel to Paris pursued by a private detective hired by Lorelei's fiancé's disapproving father to keep an eye on her, a rich, enamoured old man and many other doting admirers.

    Seven Year Itch
    When his family goes away for the summer, a so far faithful husband is tempted by a beautiful neighbor

    There’s No Business Like Show Business
    Molly and Terry Donahue, plus their three children, are The Five Donahues. Son Tim meets hat-check girl Vicky and the family act begins to fall apart.

    River of No Return
    A frontier farmer takes off with his son and a saloon singer after the man who stole his rifle and his horse.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARILYN!!!
    Thanks Adam for that report. I already have the two of them but i will take what they give me. I just wish they would have done a few others plus the restoration on Somethings Got To Give in HD would have been great. I watch it every year on Marilyn's Birthday
