Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend in this marvellous musical.
Monroe and Russell are terrific in Hawks’ gorgeous musical about a two showgirls sailing for Paris while checking out suitably moneyed males. The musical numbers are simultaneously sumptuous and ironic, and the colour and costumes are ravishing.
