‘The Prince and the Showgirl:’ Photos of Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe in the 1957 Rom-Com

The Prince and the Showgirl is a 1957 romantic comedy film, starring Marilyn Monroe, Laurence Olivier, who also served as director and producer, and Sybil Thorndike. The movie was widely notorious for its backstage talk surrounding the rift between Olivier and Monroe, with the legendary symbol acting unprofessionally on set, and the renowned actor, being so fed up with her difficult behaviour that he once told her to “try and be sexy” and referred to her as “bitch.” The film did not perform well at the box office, faring poorly in comparison to Monroe’s earlier releases, though she, Olivier and Thorndike all received praise for their performances.

Here are some behind-the-scenes and stills capture Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during the filming:
