Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Director: Howard Hawks Run Time: 91 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1953
Starring: Charles Coburn, Elliott Reid, Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe had been a sex symbol for years, but these two films sent it all over the top. In GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, Monroe is paired with the less blond but no less sexy Jane Russell as a couple of lounge singers working on a transatlantic cruise. Monroe pouts, flaunts, charms, and sings (“Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend!”) her way through this ludicrously entertaining romp.
Double Feature with HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE
