Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

We close out the month with Howard Hawk’s glamorous Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which was based on the musical play of the same title co-written by Anita Loos. Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) and Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell) are best friends looking for love. Don’t miss Monroe singing “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” which is still one of the most remembered film musical performances in history.

“It’s complex and hilarious, and not hilarious at the expense of the film’s two female leads.” – Samantha Mann, Bust Magazine

“Howard Hawks adds sly sexual insinuation to the blatantly sexual antics of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in this scintillating 1953 adaptation of the stage musical based on Anita Loos’s novel.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
