Niagara (1953) Film Review

Niagara
DIRECTOR: Henry Hathaway
BOTTOM LINE: “Niagara’, Henry Hathaway’s marvelous color noir, with Marilyn Monroe as Joseph Cotten’s unfaithful wife. This marked her first significant role at Fox after four years in the wilderness. The buildup to superstardom started here. Kudos also to Fox’s second-in-command cinematographer Joe MacDonald who is responsible for the magnificent widescreen technicolor. It wasn’t often that he got out from under Leon Shamroy’s shadow.
