How to Marry a Millionaire

Securing a penthouse in the swanky part of New York City, Sutton Place, three women set their sights on marrying millionaires. Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall headline this Fox classic that was the very first film ever shot in CinemaScope (though not first released). Based on a play written by Zoƫ Akins (who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1935) and another play co-written by Katharine Albert. Enjoy this romantic comedy as part of our Afternoon Classics series centering on musicals and comedies written by or based on works of women writers.

“The CinemaScope process was well used here, with panoramic shots of Manhattan accompanied by Newman’s entire orchestra” – TV Guide
