"One of the bright spots is Miss Monroe's singing. She is pretty and with her pleasing voice and style, she shows promise."—The Motion Picture Herald on Ladies of the Chorus.

In the rare Technicolor-noir Niagara, young honeymooners at Niagara Falls find themselves mixed up in a murder plot involving a troubled couple played by Monroe and Joseph Cotton. (92 mins., 35mm)

Monroe’s first major role was in Columbia’s Ladies of the Chorus, in which she plays a burlesque dancer who catches the eye of rich socialite Rand Brooks. (61 mins., 35mm)

Ladies of the Chorus begins at 8:40 PM.
