What's on their wall...

In Happy Together we can spot in the closet of Alex’s dorm room the poster for Bus Stop with Marilyn Monroe (we do also find on her wall a poster for Singing in the Rain and by her bedside Casablanca, but those do bear less importance). It’s easy to see how a character as Alex would be a fan of Marilyn Monroe with whom she shares more than just a career wish; as Marilyn is often portrayed to have secretly stayed the country girl that amidst parties, men and movie career always searched for the one thing Hollywood hasn’t to offer: Love and a home, so is Alex a character that likes to party hard and changes identity with every new boyfriend, always searching for something or someone to give her live a meaning, to provide her a place in the order of things.
