In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl with Sir Laurence Olivier with Marilyn Monroe. 40 years later his diary account was published, but one week was missing. This film is the story of that week: an idyll in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of working.
"Pure perfection! What an extraordinary thrill to leave the theater feeling exhilarated and rejuvenated. It's a magical experience." - The New York Observer
