One of the main reasons why ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’ should be included in the list of the best movies ever made is its great cast. It stars Donald O’Connor, Ethel Merman, and, the most important, Marilyn Monroe. She was a great actress and her appearance in any movie, including this one, significantly increased not only its ratings but the quality as well. No other actress could have played the role of Vicky more brilliantly. She portrays the main character traits of Vicky but remains charming at the same time.
One of the best episodes of the movie stars Monroe. It is worth watching only to see that moment and enjoy her great acting. At first Vicky tries to compete with the vaudeville family of the Donahues. She climbs up the vaudeville ladder on which they have already balanced at the top rung. Later we can watch the development of her character but all episodes when she is present are wonderful. Therefore the movie is loved not only by the fans of Marilyn Monroe but by many other viewers who truly enjoy it.
