“Most of the great stars of the Actors Studio were there to see Marilyn Monroe do Anna Christie. I was there, and it was a night I’ll never forget. She was marvelous. It was Marilyn’s own thing- Marilyn playing this beat down old streetwalker. It was a joke that Marilyn was going to do a scene from Anna Christie. But it was no joke. It was really an extraordinary moment in the theater. She would have been marvelous in the theater.” – John Springer, publicist.
