With a screenplay by Monroe's former husband, playwright Arthur Miller. (124 mins., 35mm)

Don’t Bother to Knock stars Richard Widmark as a just-dumped pilot who meets a young babysitter (Monroe) staying at his hotel and soon discovers she’s the last person who should be trusted with someone’s kid. (76 mins., 35mm)
