A rare film noir shot in color, Niagara was the first film in which Monroe received top billing. In a movie praised for capturing gorgeous natural beauty in full 3-strip technicolor, Monroe in her pink dress was referred to interchangeably with the the titular falls! Given the media and cultural saturation of all-thing-Marilyn, this character is particularly well recognized as Andy Warhol used a still from Niagara as the basis for his 1962 Marilyn Diptych silkscreen — one of Warhol’s most famous and enduring images.
