my sentence read, "Drink is not a woman, AND DRINK IS NOT A METRO." (emphasis added)

Well, yes, you are not a woman, I can accept that ...

OMFG Sophia Loren???  Shocked Shocked Shocked

wtf is with you Europeans???

Maybe it's just a time-period thing. I would hope that in 2014, things are different.
Maybe it's like the arms - some girls shave their arms, some girls don't, maybe in 50 years we'll look back and say, "I can't believe women used to leave hair on their arms!"

But Bitter Rice is a direct translation. The title became a synonym for a large bust size.

I found what I was looking for http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040737/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv IMDB says "Riso Amaro" can mean "Bitter Rice" or "Bitter Laughter"

I just think "Bitter Rice" is a ridiculous name, so I prefer to use the Italian name. It can't sound ridiculous if I don't speak the language  Wink

She was wonderful in The Asphalt Jungle. I love the way the commissioner brought her back to reality in her final scene of the film! (I don't want to say anything more about that scene, for fear of giving away spoilers.)

She was also sweet and charming in How to Marry a Millionaire. She and the underrated David Wayne made a cute couple.

I like Marilyn Monroe for her screen personality. As you say some actors are fun to watch and she definitely is. I'm never really gauging her acting because she just holds my attention anyway.

I think that 'Niagara' proves that she could act. I also think that 'River Of No Return' was good for her because she shows a natural maternal instinct for Robert Mitchum's son in that one. That type of emotion is hard to fake whereas selling sex was so easy for her.

I've seen River of No Return, but I admit that I barely paid attention to her performance. I think that this film was about the background scenery, really.
