Don't Bother to Knock 1952
The elevator operator (Elisa Cook, Jr.) for a fancy hotel enlists his niece (Marilyn Monroe) to babysit for the daughter (Donna Corcoran) of a couple (Jim Backus and Lurene Tuttle) attending an awards event at the hotel. Soon Monroe begins flirting with an embittered guest (Richard Widmark) who is reeling from a recent breakup with his girlfriend (Anne Bancroft) — but their flirtation quickly turns dangerous as disturbed Monroe begins to believe Widmark is actually her deceased fiance.

Don't Bother to Knock is Marilyn Monroe's first starring role. If you have never seen this movie you may be surprised because it is a very un-Marilyn like role. Part psychological drama and part thriller, the film remains one of Marilyn Monroe's best dramatic performances.
