Suggestion of the Week

Film, Howard Hawks, Marilyn Monroe

Gentleman Prefer Blondes (Howard Hawks)

You could always use some Marilyn Monroe

“That subtle backlash of burlesque banter not only tags the brand of wit that flows with old-fashioned charm through the picture, but pointedly explains the buoyancy and survival of the young ladies in this bumptious film.”

Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) is a showgirl engaged to be married to the wealthy Gus Esmond (Tommy Noonan). However, Gus’ father thinks Lorelei if just after his son’s money. When Lorelei goes on a cruise with a friend, Gus’ father hires a private detective to follow her and report any questionable behavior.
