62 Vintage Photos of Behind-the Scenes of ‘Something’s Got to Give’ – The Last Unfinished Movie of Marilyn Monroe, 1962

Something’s Got to Give is an unfinished 1962 American feature film, directed by George Cukor for Twentieth Century-Fox and starring Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Cyd Charisse. A remake of My Favorite Wife (1940), a screwball comedy starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunne, it was Monroe’s last work; from the beginning its production was disrupted by her personal troubles, and after her death on August 5, 1962 the film was abandoned. Most of its completed footage remained unseen for many years.

Twentieth Century-Fox overhauled the entire production idea the following year with mostly new cast and crew and produced their My Favorite Wife remake, now entitled Move Over, Darling and starring Doris Day, James Garner, and Polly Bergen.

These glamorous photos are the last images of Monroe in her last unfinished movie Something’s Got to Give in 1962.

Director George Cukor plants a kiss on Marilyn Monroe’s cheek as she reports on the set in Hollywood, California, USA on April 30, 1962, to begin work in the film “Something’s Got To Give”. Marilyn was prevented from reporting on time a week ago because of a virus infection that gave her a slight temperature and kept her confined to bed. The studio says she’s in great shape, having shed 15 pounds and won back her old waist measurement of 22 inches.
