  • On the evening of Monday, June 11, Twentieth, having already poured more than $2 million into Something's Got to Give, suspended production. Cukor diverted himself with talk of doing a film based on all that had happened backstage: Marilyn, manipulative and outrageously demanding, would be a character. So would the pretentious Paula. So would various inept studio executives who repeatedly give in to the troublesome star. Cukor insisted it would be the definitive Hollywood tale, a tragicomedy with a most dramatic denouement. The one thing Marilyn Monroe has always feared finally occurs; she really does goes mad.
