Love Nest ★★ 1951
Lundigan stars as Jim Scott, the landlord of an apartment building brimming with wacky tenants, including Monroe, Paar, and Fay. He dreams of becoming a famous writer, but his time is always filled with fixing up the building and trying to pay the mortgage. When one of the tenants ends up in jail because he was living off wealthy widows, Scott's luck changes. This moderately funny film is a good look at the early careers of Monroe and Paar. 84m/B VHS, DVD . William Lundigan, June Haver, Frank Fay, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Paar; D: Joseph M. Newman; W: I.A.L. Diamond; M: Cyril Mockridge.
