LP0304. LET’S MAKE LOVE, Original 1960 20th Century Fox Sound Track, w.Marilyn Monroe, Yves Montand, Tony Randall, Frankie Vaughn. Columbia 6-eye red label stereo CS8327.
“LET'S MAKE LOVE is a 1960 musical comedy film made by 20th Century Fox in DeLuxe Color and CinemaScope. It was directed by George Cukor and produced by Jerry Wald from a screenplay by Norman Krasna, Hal Kanter, and Arthur Miller. It starred Marilyn Monroe, Yves Montand, and Tony Randall. It would be Monroe's last musical film performance. With Monroe attached to the picture, she and Miller wanted the part of Amanda expanded. Miller worked on the script (although he did not receive credit) to expand the role. Gregory Peck bowed out after the emphasis shifted to the female lead. Various sources state that the role was then offered to Rock Hudson, Cary Grant, and Charlton Heston, all of whom declined. It was eventually offered to Yves Montand, who had appeared in a French film version of Miller's THE CRUCIBLE (1957) and had received praise for his recent one-man musical show in New York. Monroe and Miller both gave their approval for Montand in the role. The title was changed to LET'S MAKE LOVE and production began in January 1960 with George Cukor directing.”
