Tonner Dolls has released yet another Marilyn doll. This one is a web exclusive and is limited to only 150 dolls. It is based on Marilyn singing "Heatwave" from There's No Business Like Show Business.
The details of this outfit look amazing! They really seemed to spend the time getting it right. I am thrilled that they are continuing to release ORIGINAL Marilyn outfits that have not appeared on other dolls before.
The fun of the Tonner dolls will be the ability to pose her - especially in this outfit. Let's hope they keep them coming!
What other outfits would you like to see Tonner Release? I'd like to see a "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" doll.
I discovered today that the documentary Love Marilyn is available on pay per view in Canada! I have Bell TV and found it available for $9.99. I was so excited to finally be able to see it.
Overall I think it was a wonderful documentary. They used lots of rare footage which was refreshing however the real star was Marilyn's words. I wasn't sure what I would think of other actors reading her words. I enjoyed this when they would also show Marilyn's actual handwriting in the background. Partly because it helped to identify what was going on. I admit that I got confused sometimes as to whose words the actor/actress's were speaking as they also read excerpts from Mailer, Miller, Steinem, etc.
Nevertheless, I would recommend it as a high quality documentary on Marilyn that really tried to look below the surface and show her as a real person.
Tonner dolls have released 2 new Marilyn Monroe dolls and an outfit. I am so excited to see this doll company continue to produce unique Marilyn dolls. They are giving us 3 new looks that have never appeared on any prior doll.
