Love Marilyn Documentary On Demand with Bell

I discovered today that the documentary Love Marilyn is available on pay per view in Canada!  I have Bell TV and found it available for $9.99.  I was so excited to finally be able to see it.  

Overall I think it was a wonderful documentary.  They used lots of rare footage which was refreshing however the real star was Marilyn's words.  I wasn't sure what I would think of other actors reading her words.  I enjoyed this when they would also show Marilyn's actual handwriting in the background.  Partly because it helped to identify what was going on.  I admit that I got confused sometimes as to whose words the actor/actress's were speaking as they also read excerpts from Mailer, Miller, Steinem, etc.

Nevertheless, I would recommend it as a high quality documentary on Marilyn that really tried to look below the surface and show her as a real person.
