The reenactments of scenes from The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) were filmed on the same soundstage as the original.
In 1956, at the height of her career, Marilyn Monroe went to England to make a film with Sir Laurence Olivier. While there she met a young man named Colin Clark, who wrote a diary about the making of the film. This is their true story.
In the screening room sequences, a close up of the projector lens reveals an anamorphic lens, which would be projecting the image in Cinemascope. "The Prince & The Showgirl" is not a wide-screen movie and rather shot in full academy, 1.37:1 aspect ratio. Furthermore, when the dailies are shown on screen, the image looks closer to 1.85:1, much wider than the original format of the movie.
