Marilyn Monroe plays a mentally unbalanced young woman who is hired by a gentlemen to look after his little girl in their hotel room while he spends the evening at a party. As the evening progresses we discover that Monroe’s deranged mind has some pretty dark bedtime surprises for the young lady. Aside from the rare opportunity to see Marilyn playing a psycho, which she does fairly well, the other big kick you’ll get from watching this is seeing a very young Anne Bancroft in one of her first notable roles.
