I is for Ivy Lynn



Welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge where I will post on a word
featuring a different letter of the alphabet each day of the month of April.
My theme for this challenge is Female TV Characters.



Ivy Lynn- "SMASH"

THE STORY: Ivy Lynn and Karen Cartwright are battling it out to play the part of Marilyn Monroe in a new Broadway musical.


UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL: Ivy's mother was a Broadway legend, so Ivy grew up in the world of the theatre. She's a talented singer and dancer but her insecurities cause problems. She pops pills and has no qualms about using her sex appeal to get what she wants. And she wants to be "Marilyn." Or else.


What's your favorite Marilyn Monroe movie?

I started watching this show but it was too much drama too soon. I guess that was the point.
I like your theme.
Some great TV character women in your list.

A great post. My favourite Marilyn Monroe film has to be 'Some like it Hot'


All the best,

Heather: It's a great show. I love theatre so the setting appeals to me on that level. Debra Messing is wonderful as the songwriter for the musical.

Jack: Mine, too! I never get tired of that movie. Jack Lemmon is hilarious!

Hi, I enjoyed "Seven Year Itch" with Tom Ewell. She was also excellent in "Bus Stop". Enjoyed your blog posts. Hopping on to see some more. Best regards to you. Ruby

"Some Like it Hot" was a very funny movie.

Craig Edwards said...

Not a show I watch, but she's certainly a fetching young thing.

Belle said...

I think, 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' was my favorite and then 'How to Marry a Millionaire'. I liked her in comedies, didn't care for her dramatic movies.

Greetings! Great theme! I wanted to get involved with Smash but just didn't have the time for a new show. Maybe over the summer because it does look so good! Have a great April!

Hmmm, isn't that sort of how the real Marilyn Monroe was? She should be a shoe-in!

Shannon: You're right. The character Ivy is very similar to Marilyn. It will be interesting to see how everything turns out.

Good to see all the yesteryear movie actresses.
I did see a movie about Marilyn. I don't remember the name, but after watching the movie, I felt sad for her.
