Gentlemen prefer blondes

Superstars Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell reached their zenith with this splashy comedy from 20th Century Fox. Based on a Broadway comedy by Joseph Fields and Anita Loos, Monroe and Russell play chorus girls Lorelei and Dorothy. The two are on a voyage to Paris, hoping to dodge the private detective hired by the father of Lorelei’s naive fiancé (Tommy Noonan). They hope to attract some of the rich eligible men on the cruise along the way. Among the musical numbers is the iconic Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend. Keep an eye out for future Oscar winner George Chakiris (West Side Story) as one of Marilyn’s chorus boys, and an ear out for contributions from composers Hoagy Carmichael and Jule Styne.
