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.
