One of her first pictures, Ladies of the Chorus was a 1948 movie that was her first leading role and actually got some camera action. A star of the film, Marilyn played Peggy, a sweet chorus girl who is striving to prove her worth as an entertainer. The filmed was shot in 10 days and was deemed a B film that didn't stay in theaters long, however, when Monroe became famous in the 50's the film was reissued with her as the main artwork in marketing, helping the film gain notice. At the time of it's release, the Motion Picture Herald dubbed her " One of the bright spots is Miss Monroe's singing. She is pretty, and with her pleasing voice and style, she shows promise".
