With Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotten, Jean Peters, Max Showalter, Lurene Tuttle, Denis O'Dea, Russell Collins
Niagara is an American 1953 thriller-film noir, released by Twentieth Century-Fox, directed by Henry Hathaway, and starring Joseph Cotten, Jean Peters, Casey Adams, and Marilyn Monroe.
Unlike other film noirs of the time, Niagara was filmed in Technicolor and was one of Fox's biggest box office hits of the year.
Monroe was given first billing in Niagara which elevated her to star status. Her following two films of that year, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, with Jane Russell, and How to Marry a Millionaire, with Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall, were even bigger successes.
