Marilyn Monroe poses for publicity at Niagara Falls, wearing her most recognized costume for this film while on location. One of the last films to be shot in the three-strip Technicolor process, it was Monroe’s first color film and one of the few in the noir genre to be filmed in color.
According to the addendum to the original theatrical trailer, once the credits about the film being full of suspense had been presented, it was announced that the film featured the two most electrifying sights in the world: Niagara Falls and Marilyn Monroe. This portrait delivers both. Ink stamp at middle bottom blank white margin which says “Negative at Studio”.
