Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Niagara

NIAGARA is a movie directed by Henry Hathaway in 1953.

The setting is Niagara Falls. Marilyn Monroe is inconveniently married to Joseph Cotten. She plots Cotten's murder with her new lover. But Joseph Cotten survives and comes back with a sole idea in mind : to kill Marilyn. Splendid cinematography and a mean Marilyn in an enchanting landscape.
