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.

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
