Iconic Bombshell Marilyn Monroe Stuns in High-Def with 'Forever Marilyn' (and Psst...Giveaway!)

This week, there's not much in the way of new movies to mention being released to home video (unless you're into Josh Hutcherson or Dane Cook--and if so I'm sorry--in which case there's the bizarre horror comedy Detention). So, we give you this lovely new box set of seven Marilyn Monroe classics on Blu-ray, released today on the 50th anniversary of the star's passing, which includes:

- The Seven Year Itch

- Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

- How to Marry a Millionaire

- River of No Return

- There's No Business Like Show Business

- Some Like It Hot (previously released on BD)

- The Misfits (previously released on BD)

The transfers are superb, the blacks very black and the colors brilliant, and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks sound terrific (though if you're a purist, you have the option of listening in mono, too). There are no extras here that haven't been previously released in SD, but there are still a lot of bonus features worth watching regardless and the films' appearance in HD is a significant enough improvement that fans will want to snap this release up. (Sadly, we wish Niagara had been included, but you can't have it all.)

Now, do you want a copy? Tell me below in the comments which of the seven movies is your favorite, and a copy can be yours! Winner will be selected at random and notified by email by next Tuesday, Aug. 7. Open to U.S. residents 18 and over only, please.
